The site of greatest interest in the near vicinity is the Ohrmann Museum & Gallery, four miles up Highway 1 from the little village of Hall. The Ohrmann Museum is a fascinating place to visit. The yard is filled with Bill Ohrmann's creations, animals and insects, both contemporary and prehistoric, all expertly crafted of metal. Here one will find Mayflies, Herons, Kodiaks, Elk, Antelope, Mules, Polar Bears, Turtles, Eagles, Owls, even Dinosaurs and Wolly Mammoths. They were all finely sculpted with welder and cutting torch.

Just inside the gallery, on a small oak lecturn, is the Museum's guest book, begun on October, 19, 2002. Be sure to sign it when you visit.

This is a free museum and you are welcome to view, photograph and even sit on the Turtle. According to Mrs. Ohrmann, Bill was a rancher and artist all of his life. Though he has produced some amazing sculptures, he now limits his creativity to paintings that he sells in the gallery. Note: all of the sculptures that are on display are "Not for Sale" and placed there purely for the enjoyment and appreciation of Mr. Ohrmann's talents. Sadly, Bill Ohrmann passed away on November 19, 2014, just five months before the accompanying photos were taken.

Bill Ohrmann has been an artist all of his life, and has created a wealth of oil and water color paintings, and procuded sculptures in a number of mediums. Beginning with simple themes of wildlife in both his paintings and sculptures, he took the wood carvings to new styles that can be seen in no other art while his more recent paintings are also a demonstration of his ability to create an entirely new way to express ideas.

Bill has also been a Montana rancher all of his life, being born on a ranch outside of Philipsburg in 1919, and living in the Philipsburg and Ovando area before the family moved to the present ranch south of Drummond in 1934. Living on and working the ranches gave him an appreciation for nature and a love of animals. He was always a good steward of the land and treated his stock with care.
