The Starr Gallery of Western Art, located in the
Council Room of the newly constructed Bourgeois
House at Historic Old Fort Benton, features
noted Montana sculptor Bob Scriver’s No
More Buffalo Collection, along with rare Karl Bodmer
prints detailing Montana’s scenery and Indian cultures
in the 1830s.
The Scriver collection has been at Edmonton’s Provincial Museum of Alberta for the past decade and is now on loan to the River and Plains Society from the Montana State Historical Society. The prints from Swiss painter Karl Bodmer's travels with Prince Maximilian to the interior of North America still stand today as the most accurate and detailed pictures of Native American life during that era.
Visitors may also view the office and living quarters of Alexander Culbertson and his wife Natawista, the founders of Fort Benton.
