Inscription.  The Museum of the Rockies acquired the Tinsley house in 1986, which helped complete the plans for a working Living History Farm exhibit. The house was moved from Willow Creek, MT in one piece and restored to its original 1890s condition. After restoration, the house was dedicated as part of Montana's Centennial on Statehood Day, November 8, 1989.
Today, costumed interpreters work this farm as Montana homesteaders would have done in the 1880s and 1890s. During the summer months, this exhibit is busy with gardeners tending, women cooking the noontime meal and the blacksmith creating ironworks with the coal fire forge.
 
Erected by Museum of the Rockies.
