Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame seeks nominations for Class of 2015 


Big Timber - The Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame & Western Heritage Center (MCHF & WHC) is seeking nominations for the 2015 Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame induction round. Every year, the MCHF & WHC honors living and historical figures that have made notable contributions to Montana’s western heritage.

“The Hall of Fame nominations are open to the general public,” said Mark Larson, MCHF & WHC director, and chairman of the Board Trustees Committee. “We encourage all to reflect on notable contributions to our western heritage and help us celebrate by nominating those from your community you believe serve as an example for next generation.”

2015 will mark the fifth year the MCHF & WHC will honor living historical figures and the eighth year of honoring legacy (non-living) inductees. One living inductee and two legacy inductees from each of the MCHF & WHC’s 12 Trustee Districts will be chosen from votes cast by the MCHF & WHC Board of Trustees based on nominations from the public. Nominees are assigned to a Trustee District for consideration based on the local area where their notable contributions were made.

Nominees can be men, women, ranches, stage coach lines, animals, hotels, etc.—anyone or anything that has made a notable contribution or serves as a notable example of our Montana western heritage. A full listing of inductees from 2008-2014, the 2015 nomination criteria, and more about the Hall of Fame induction process can be found online at If you would like to make a nomination, you must contact the MCHF & WHC at or by calling (406) 932-5444 prior to the submission deadline to express your intent to nominate.
