Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame seeks nominations for Class of 2019



The Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame & Western Heritage Center (MCHF & WHC) is seeking nominations for the 2019 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.

“We invite people from across Montana to identify those in their communities who are most deserving of inclusion in the hall of fame,” said Bill Galt, MCHF&WHC board president. “Nominations are open and welcome from the public at large.”

The MCHF & WHC Board of Trustees will cast votes to select living and legacy inductees from each of the MCHF & WHC’s 12 Trustee Districts based on nominations from the public.

Nominees can be men, women, ranches, stage coach lines, animals, hotels, etc.—anyone or anything that has made a notable contribution to our Montana western heritage.
