Preservation People


We are delighted to officially welcome Madeline Westrom, our new Outreach Coordinator. Madie came to MPA as an intern in 2016, working on our Big Sky Schoolhouse Survey, and graduated in May with a degree in history from Carroll College. Her excellent efforts with the Schoolhouse Survey and bright new ideas for outreach and education efforts made it impossible to let her go. We are so excited to have her on board to assist with events, marketing, membership, and documentation projects.

The New School

A warm welcome to Joe Warden and Ryan Wendel of Helena, new volunteers helping out with the Big Sky Schoolhouse Survey. Joe will hunt for schoolhouses in Broadwater County and Ryan will sleuth out historic schoolhouses in Jefferson County. Last but not least, we welcome history teacher Amber Llewellyn and the Glasgow High School History Club, who are already at work in Valley County finding and documenting schoolhouses.

To volunteer at MPA, email or call Madeline Westrom at or 406-457-2822.
