Bootlegging History in Great Falls – A Special Exhibit of Yesteryear
There really isn't an argument when it comes to history in Montana. We have tons of it. From our rich history and culture of Native Americans, cattle drives and the conquering of the West itself all happened through our state. As we grew up, history continued to build, but sometimes it was on the seedier side of the law. It simply takes watching a movie about bootlegging with famous actors and shot around Cascade County that you realize the heyday of prohibition ran right through our area in Great Falls.
