Wolf Point Residents Bitter Over Museum Reversal
WOLF POINT, Mont. (AP) — The decision to move the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame to Big Timber isn't sitting well with Wolf Point residents.
The Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame & Western Heritage Center's announcement on Monday reverses the state Legislature's 2003 designation of Wolf Point as the museum site.
Bids were reopened last year after sentiment grew that the small town in northeastern Montana might not be able to support a large facility.
Wolf Point resident Don Stockman says the community has been working on securing the hall for more than a decade. He says residents have spent a lot of time and money only to see it stolen away.
Missouri Valley Development Corp. president Duane Kurokawa says he wishes Big Timber well and he hopes that community can put something together.
