Welcome to the Montana State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO)
Website! SHPO works together with all Montanans to promote the
preservation of our state's historic and cultural places. From
10,000-year-old archaeological sites to 100-year-old homestead farms, a
lot of history has unfolded beneath the big Montana sky. We encourage
people across the state to identify, document, recognize and protect the
heritage sites of Montana, preserving our rich cultural landscape for
generations to come.
