HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – This Saturday, many historical attractions around town will combine their efforts for Havre’s annual “Living History Day”. At Havre Beneath the Streets, underground tours will be offered every half hour from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Office Manager Christy Owens they will also feature a bake sale, old-fashioned candies and ice cream samples.
“The tickets for that day only, it’ll be $8 per person, which is quite a discount from our regular-priced tickets. Our regular-priced tickets are $17. But, there again, it’s not going to be like our regular tours. You’re going to get kind of an overview of the history of Havre and it’s mainly going to be, kind of a walk-through and see the skits.”
The Frank DeRosa Railroad Museum will also be open on Saturday from 9:00 to 4:00.
“We are going to have trains running that day in the Railroad Museum. The Pacific Junction Railway Club will be running the H-O scale trains. We’ll have those running upstairs as well as in the basement of the railroad museum. And that is free of charge, the Railroad Museum. So if you’re not interested in taking in the tour, you can certainly still come down and check out the trains.”
Owens says they have had to cut out the end of their tour due to deterioration of the sidewalk and are still raising money for repairs.
