Fort Assinniboine

Havre Museum

Living History Day

Established in 1879, Fort Assinniboine is located in northern Montana just outside of Havre along Highway 87. Known as Montana's grandest military post, Ft. Assinniboine was home to roughly 750 soldiers and civilians at its peak.

Encompassing over 100 structures, Fort Assinniboine features tours beginning at H. Earl Clack Museum – set near the Holiday Village Shopping Center. Assinniboine is also a member of the Old Forts Trail – an official Montana historic trail.

Montana State University-Northern

A member of the Montana State University System, Montana State University-Northern is located in Havre, a charming city in the far north of Montana, just east of Shelby. Up until 2007, it was simply known as Northern Montana College. MSU-Northern fields athletic teams like men's and women's basketball, football, golf, and wrestling who compete within the Frontier Conference.

When planning your visit to Montana, make it to the northern region and check out Havre. Plan a campus tour of MSU-Northern with your high school senior and start planning for the next step in higher education. Get and experience the city, too – you'll want to fish a bit at Sands Lake, enjoy a nice spring picnic at Patterson Park or Kuhr Memorial Park.
