A Ghostly Gathering
October 29,, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
History and the supernatural are the canvas for this program that intertwines the past with the present. Historian, storyteller, and award-winning author Ellen Baumler weaves a ghostly web in a thought-provoking journey to Montana’s most spirited places. Basing her true stories on firsthand accounts, personal interviews, and historic records, her well-researched tales have scared and delighted audiences of all ages. Haunted places include hotels, houses, cemeteries, mines, and historic landscapes across Montana. With a ghostly twist on history, Baumler captures Montana’s cultural heritage and brings the state’s supernatural past to life.
Ellen earned her Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in English, Classics, and History. She was the Montana Historical Society’s interpretive historian from 1992 until her retirement in 2018 and is the author of numerous books and dozens of articles on diverse topics. Her stories of the supernatural have been collected in five books. This program offers a spooky sampling of tales that enrich the local landscape and beautifully embellish the heritage that is important to all places.
If the crowd is too large for the museum, the event will be moved to the Clancy Methodist Church.
