Long Description:
We stumbled across this museum accidentally while touring around Browning and though we'd better stop and check it out. We're happy that we did, as though small, the museum has a lot of interesting western and native related artefacts and paraphernalia within its walls. It it's western related, you'll likely find it here.

A more or less standard sized cook stove, this one appears to be all cast iron, with the majority of it finished with two tone porcelain, white and cream or off white. This is a wood or coal burning stove; given all the porcelain, we would guess 1920s, or even the 1930s, to be the vintage. Above the cooking surface is a warming rack and hanging off the right end is a water reservoir. The only lettering we found on the stove read "Oven Thermometer". We doubt anyone would name their stove "Oven Thermometer".

Privately owned, the museum was established in 2000, being dedicated to James Diamond R. Brown, a bullwhacker, trader, and rancher of frontier times, by his great-great grandson. Following are excerpts from a much longer bio of Diamond Brown.
