THESE HISTORIC OLD HOUSES ‘CAN’ TALK AT MHS PROGRAM
The powerful and interesting people who built and lived in them are long gone, but the mansions and homes they left behind still tell a story that those willing to look for it can find.
On Thursday (June 9) at 6:30 p.m. at the Montana Historical Society author Preethi Ferdinand will present a free Power-Point program “Castles and Grand Homes Of Montana and Beyond.”
Much of the program will focus on famous Montana residences like the Marcus Daly Mansion in Hamilton that was built by the famous Butte Copper King, but Ferdinand will also talk about other places she has researched and photographed like the Bavarian Neuschwanstein castle of King Ludwig II built between 1869-1873.
The stories the castles and homes conjured up for Ferdinand range from scandal, espionage, murder, ghosts and fortunes made and lost.
