HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – Representatives with the H. Earl Clack Museum and Foundation gathered inside the Griggs Printing building in downtown Havre on Thursday for the presentation of the annual Havre/Hill County Preservation Award to the Havre History Center.

The plaque was presented by Historic Preservation Officer Becki Miller, who said the Board has done a wonderful job repurposing a historic building.

“The beauty of it is that it’s preserving the history of this building, and it’s got this other story of having the Clack Museum in it, and of you guys having a permanent home, and how great that is.”

Foundation President Elaine Morse echoed that sentiment.

“We were on the Fairgrounds, then we moved down to the Heritage Center, then we went up to the (Holiday Village) Mall, then we moved three times up there, and now we’re home.”

The H. Earl Clack Museum is expected to open inside the Griggs Printing building within the next month or so, but a grand opening date has not yet been announced.
