1. The Tinsley Family Marker
Inscription.  Missourian, William Tinsley traveled to Montana in 1864 to stake his own homestead claim in Willow Creek, MT. William and his soon to be wife, Lucy Ann Nave met in Virginia City, MT where William worked for the Wells Fargo Stage Company and Lucy worked as a seamstress.
After William and Lucy were married, they moved to William's 160 homestead claim in Willow Creek and built a modest one room cabin in 1867. Eight children and 20 years later, the Tinsley family began building the house that is now the Museum of the Rockies Living History Farm centerpiece. The Tinsely Family occupied this house on the original homestead claim until around 1920.
 
Erected by Museum of the Rockies.
