    Robin Cadby-Sorensen, Curator Emeritus|Jul 13, 2022

    Forty years ago this month, the doors of the Headwaters Heritage Museum were first opened for visitors at its new location at 202 South Main Street. It was July of 1982. It must have been an exciting moment for those who were involved in obtaining the building. Previously, they had just a few exhibits in two rooms of the Sacajawea Hotel. Constructed in 1910, the building was first known as the Three Valleys State Bank until 1918. Then, it reopened as the American National Bank of Three Forks,... Full story

  • Three Forks All-School Reunion: Annual "Tidbits"

    Robin Cadby-Sorensen|Jun 30, 2021

    Some of the photos on the “Alumni Wall” in the Gilmore Room of the Headwaters Heritage Museum have faded over the years, and a project is now underway to restore them. The photos were copied from the museum’s collection of annuals (or yearbooks). While browsing through those annuals, I was reminded of doing the same for a booklet I put together for the 2008 All School Reunion. The following is that selection of annual “Tidbits” that I found to be interesting. The first annual was produced in 1919, and this class gave the book its name, “He... Full story

  • All-School Reunion: History of Three Forks Schools

    Robin Cadby-Sorensen|Jun 23, 2021

    Since there will be an All School Reunion this summer, maybe some information about the beginnings of the school system in Three Forks would be appropriate at this time. Information for this article was provided by the Headwaters Heritage History, published in 1983 by the Three Forks Area Historical Society. In September of 1909, a building on 1st Avenue West between Grove and Hickory was the first school house in the new town of Three Forks. It was owned by W. J. Walsh and had been used as a... Full story
