Montana Cultural Symbols

Montana boasts nearly a dozen official cultural symbols, quite a roster for a Great Plains state. Unfortunately, most are predictably redneck symbols. In fact, several are discussed under political symbols.

Montana Cultural Symbols

The only symbols that look halfway interesting to me are the official Cowboy Hall of Fame at Wolfe Point and the official ballad (“Montana Melody”) and lullaby (“Montana Lullaby”). The official arboretum might be worth visiting if you’re ever passing through Missoula.

After checking out Montana’s political symbols, you may begin to wonder if the scenery looks better on the way out.
