Henderson Sisters, "Girl in Montana"

“From the hills of Eureka comes the return of Out of the Studio. Sarah has been an inspiration to many as a friend, musician, teacher, mother and for all the many roles she's filled in people's lives. Happy to finally film this episode, it's been on my wish list since the beginning. Hope you enjoy!" -

Missoula Childrens Theatre

Can you imagine walking into a room with eighty children all waiting impatiently? Can you imagine getting this group of young people ages six to eighteen years old organized to audition for a play? Can you even begin to imagine selecting sixty of these children and having them ready in five days to give a full length musical? This is the magic of Missoula Children's Theater. Two actors/directors arrived in Eureka on October 6th, a Monday afternoon, in their red truck to hold auditions and to begin rehearsals. On October 11th, they will give two public performances of "The Wizard of Oz" with their cast of sixty young thespians singing, dancing, and taking us all along the yellow brick road. All of it from the first encouragement to "speak in a loud and clear voice," to costumes, staging, songs and the final applause on Saturday afternoon is a remarkable experience.

Sunburst Foundation Beginnings

In 1994 four friends in Eureka decided there were things the town could use – like more social services that didn’t require driving to Libby or a professional concert series that didn’t require driving to Whitefish.

So the idea of the Sunburst Community Service Foundation was born. And it grew - starting with Families in Partnership, a mentoring program and Faith in Action. And it grew... bringing in Shakespeare in the Parks, Missoula Children’s Theater and concerts that always have an outreach component to the schools. And it continues to grow.

Historic Village in Eureka Montana

A visit to the Historical Village is a step back in time. Located at the south end of Eureka among tall green trees and on visitor-friendly grounds, you can explore at your leisure ten historic village structures and a vast number of artifacts and archival materials originating from the Tobacco Valley area. Find out first-hand as you visit each one, the story of the structure and its contents. You will see how the first non-native settlers of this area lived, raised their families, earned a living and negotiated the vast northwestern Montana landscape.
