I stopped in Polson, Montana on my way to see Glacier Park . Polson is a small lakeshore community located on the Flathead Indian Reservation which, is named after a rancher pioneer, David Polson. The RV park where I stayed, was on the south side of Flathead Lake. Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake in the United States west of the Mississippi River.
Polson is best known for its countless cherry orchards. I'm no stranger to cherry blossoms, being from D.C., and just like D.C., Polson celebrates an annual Cherry Festival.
I really enjoyed my stay, biking for many miles around this adorable town which, also had a great espresso house on the side of the road. I recommend you visit, the Polson-Flathead Historical Museum, the Peoples Center in Pablo, and especially, the Miracle of America museum. All offer many displays and historic memorabilia.
Below are a few pictures from, "The Miracle of America" museum. The map below is how you find your way around this enormous place.
One of the featured treasures, is the two-headed goat.
The "Black History" display is not on the map but, is located on a corner near the motorcycles. It's a small glass case. Keep in mind, most of the memorabilia is donated.
This place has so many awesome displays, including full size businesses, like an actual Dentist Office, Beauty Parlor, Post Office, Gas Station, Telephone Switch Board Office, etc. Below are just a few of the pictures.
