|Bixmarck Tribune, August 26, 1910/|
Mrs. R. D. Hoskins was sister to my grandmother, Laura Elizabeth Armstrong Hoskins. Mr. R. D. Hoskins was the first clerk of the North Dakota state supreme court, and founder of the Hoskins Meyer retail establishment in Bismarck, as well as one time editor of the Sentinel newspaper in Bathgate, North Dakota.
|The Bozeman Northern Pacific railroad depot visited by the Hoskins in 1910 has fallen into disuse. The depot was originally built in 1892 and extensively renovated in 1923. It was last used (for now discontinued Amtrak passenger service) in 1979. Plans are being develop to preserve the depot in the hope it will be restored and reused as has been done with so many other railroad depots throughout Montana.|
Snow in August? Certainly not the last. That's Montana. Good luck to all.
