One of the earliest photographs of Wolf Point at "Old Town". The Presbyterian Mission school buildings
are on the left, which operated from 1895 to 1927.

From a penny postcard, another Early View of the School, church and dormitories (similar to the one above)

This photo was supposedly taken in 1890 of a gypsy camp in or near Wolf Point.  I have blown up and corrected the original photo.  The bear in the photo would seem to indicate that these people were possibly part of a traveling circus:

This postcard is dated July 4th, 1918.  Indians celebrating the end of World War 1.  The message on the back of the postcard is dated November of 1918.  It says in part:  "How do you like our indians?  This was taken in July at their celebration.  I don't know what the one lone squaw is doing among that bunch of bucks but she is pretty good looking for a squaw.  Down town now every one is hitting up the high spots celebrating the end of the war.  Got a report that all's over and the town is crazy"

My mothers' Aunt, Vera Smith Johnson, lived in this house built by my Great Grandfather, William H. Smith, in 1910. William H. Smith was born in Llano County, Texas September 10, 1855 and died in Wolf Point January 1, 1917. He was a member of the Texas Rangers in the early 1870's. In 1884 he was a stock inspector for the Montana Stock Association. He trailed cattle to Montana four different times with his brothers, James and Drew, and the fourth time he decided to stay here in Wolf Point. He married Nellie Trexler (my Great Grandmother). This house, called the "Green House" was originally a large log house, and when John Listerud came to Wolf Point, he had the first lumber yard, and William had lumber put on this house. This house was finished December 11, 1910 and moved into on December 22, 1910. It was one of the first homes built in "new town". It was located near Benton Street on 5th Avenue South.

Here is a photo of my Great grandfather, William H. Smith (taken in 1877 in Red Rock, Texas)

In 1913, William H. Smith built this rooming house on the south side of Main Street.
Smiths' brother Ed, and his wife, Hattie, managed the place. It was later purchased by Jim Terry
and was known as the Terry Rooming House, the Terry Hotel, and later the Point Hotel.
