These 7 Houses In Montana From The 1930s Will Open Your Eyes To A Different Time
The 1930s were over nearly a century ago, but it doesn’t really feel that way. That being said, it’s easy to see how different our cities and towns look now, especially the houses. These old photos of Montana homes from the 1930s offer a glimpse into the past.
1. Here's a photo of the bunkhouses (and the main house) at Quarter Circle U Ranch in 1939.
The ranch was located in Rosebud.
2. Check out this old log house in Wisdom.
In the late 1930s, this would have been considered pretty modern.
3. This old ranch home is probably still standing.
There are so many houses just like this today. It's a reminder that the 1930s really weren't that long ago.
4. Can you spot the old ranch house in the distance?
This home belonged to Walt Stewart, whose father settled in the Treasure State in the 1890s.
5. If you were a ranch hand in Montana in the 1930s, this may have been your quarters.
We wonder what they looked like inside.
6. This house in Birney from 1939 had a sod roof.
Fun fact about sod roofs: They've been used in Scandinavia for centuries, and they're slowly making a comeback since they're good for the environment.
7. Here's a glimpse at the interior of a house from 1939 in Rosebud.
It looks pretty cozy, and aside from the lack of appliances, it's not all that different from today's Montana living rooms.
It’s so fun to look back on our history. Here’s
what Montana was up to during World War II.
