Episode 56:

Surface Dwellers

Rebecca and Mari are moving on up, literally. From their humble beginnings in a basement storage closet converted to a podcast studio to their own newly renovated building with ground-level offices, the Great Falls Montana Tourism Team is moving to 15 Overlook Drive, Great Falls, Montana. The two are ready to create a space that reflects the city that they love and want others to enjoy, but know that it will take some time to make it perfect. We can’t wait for you to see the space during your next visit! Our address has changed, but our number is the same.

Wondering why we saved certain items, and being surprised that we found ANOTHER COPY of The C.M. Russell’s Buffalo Hunt book. Christina from The C.M. Russell Museum, if you are reading this, we are not giving it to you. If you missed one of our favorite episodes that explains the connection of Christina and the book to us, listen to The Keepers of the Buffalo episode now.

Montana’s Basecamp, The Official Visitors Guide to Great Falls, Montana is now live. And flippable sooner than we thought. Enjoy and send us your feedback!

For those of you wanting to be informed about our tourism operations: Great Falls Montana Tourism operation staff operations have always been conducted at 100 1st Ave N. Guest services have been offered at 15 Overlook Drive  in the past, but were then transitioned to 100 1st Ave N with the decline of foot traffic and available volunteers. The tourism staff operations moving to 15 Overlook Drive is new to us, and will be new to you too.
