Dakota Buttes Museum

blog post: 23.April.2009

in Hettinger, North Dakota, U.S.A., with a wide assortment of objects from the homesteading days of the area (& a little beyond) to the near present, I did a few months volunteer work there a couple years ago, & have donated to the level of “sodbuster member” in the past
here one can find yesteryear cookware, dental instruments, hair dresser equipment, arrowheads, old fashioned children’s toys, a display about the Yellowstone Trail (Highway 12), Ford cars from the 1920s, portraits of many of the settlers of the area, political button pins from decades gone by, etc.

  • “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
  • “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”
  • “Capital punishment is as fundamentally wrong as a cure for crime as charity is wrong as a cure for poverty.”
I’m a little curious to see what will happen in the future of the automobile company that he started.
