The Extreme History Project Headquarters is open on Saturdays from noon to 5pm. Come in and browse our Used Book Shop. In celebration of Women’s History Month, we have a large selection of books dedicated to Women’s history in our used Book Shop, but also new books as well. We are located in historic Downtown Bozeman, MT at 234 E. Mendenhall Street.

March 14, 1pm at The Extreme History Project Headquarters – Unfinished Handcrafts Club. Do you have unfinished handcraft projects sitting around the house? Need a little help to finish them? Or maybe just someone to keep you motivated to finish? On Tuesday, March 14, 1-3pm, we will be launching a club for Unfinished Handcrafts and their owners. At the first meeting, we will decide organizational details such as meeting times and group name. Any sort of textile project that does not require machinery is welcome – hand quilting, needlework, hand sewing, rug punching or hooking, embroidery, knitting, or crocheting, etc. Projects may be historical or modern. Members are encouraged to bring a project for “show-and-tell.” Meet at The Extreme History Project headquarters located at 234 E. Mendenhall Street in Bozeman, MT at 1pm.

March 23, 6pm at The Museum of the Rockies – John Russell will present, The Gallatin Valley Female Seminary.

Religious academies, designed to counter vices like saloons and brothels prevalent on the frontier, were established throughout the American west in the 1870s. One was the Gallatin Valley Female Seminary, administered by the Presbyterian church “to give Christian education to the young people of Bozeman.” John Russell will discuss the history of the Seminary, and touch upon some other private education school efforts in the Bozeman area. John C. Russell received his Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Montana State University in 1978. He has worked as a broadcast journalist, and most recently as director of the Gallatin (County) Historical Society. John’s book on Bozeman pioneer Nelson Story, “Treasure State Tycoon, Nelson Story and the Making of Montana” was published in 2018 by the Montana Historical Society and is available at local bookstores. This event is free and open to the public and sponsored by the MSU Women’s Center and the Yellowstone Theological Institute.

Hope to see you at one of our events soon!
