HELENA – There’s a new way to learn more about Montana’s Capitol Complex District and it’s more convenient than ever.

The Capitol Campus Historic District Interactive Story Map pinpoints historic buildings in the district, as well as other notable points of interest that you might know exist.

This includes Capitol Park, east of the Department of Justice building as well as the eagle statue outside the Montana Fish and Game building that was installed in 1976.

The story map’s creator, Cultural Records manager Damon Murdo says it’s a way for Montanans to learn more about these important pieces of state history.

“In the map itself, it’s giving you the ability to cruise around the Capitol complex, see a photo or watch a video that will describe the object or structure that you’re looking at,” Murdo said. 

“You can also if you read the small snippet that is on there click to a link to the actual National Register documentation and its description of that object or property,” he added.
