The best way to learn about history and historic preservation is to see where it happened!

Every other year MPA immerses about 100 participants in the history and cultural heritage of one of Montana's many fabulous regions. For three days, an intrepid group of historians, preservationists, archaeologists, tribal experts, and authors hop on the bus with you to visit everything from ancient rock art and archaeological sites to depots, barns, mining ruins, churches, homesteads and more. Afternoon talks and dinner lectures with National speakers round out this comprehensive conference that seeks to celebrate rural Montana and build capacity for historic preservation in our rural communities. 

To learn more, take a look at highlights from one of our last three Road Shows.
