QUESTION FOR FELLOW OLD GUYS

[November 15th] -- I have been trying to remember something form my d-e-e-p past and I was hoping one of my readers (Screech, this means you!) might help.

As a little kid, I used to love going to Great Falls. In the old days, there was only one place to eat there, a large building (a log cabin variant I think) where the restaurant was located -- I'm talking circa 1962-1965. You would walk up three or four steps and be on a covered porch that ran the entire way along the front of the building. There were tables there -- that's where we always ate (I don't remember eating inside, or even if you could).

That's all that I remember. Does anyone else have any recollections regarding this place? It was brown log, rough hewn (my memory says it kinda looked like the Cartwright's Ponderosa house) and probably (but I don't remember this for sure) had a gift store in the building.

Anything you can remember would be a great help. I'm trying to finish my personal history and there are just too many holes to make it complete.

Thanks everyone.

Farid,

I probably didn't get to Great Falls for the first time until about 1968 or 1969. The only building I remember is the visitors' center, which is still there today. Sorry. I guess I'm too young!
 
Farid: I have not been there for at least 5 years, but there is a old brown looking building that you WALK DOWN to, from the parking lot, that is a small gift shop/snack bar and visitors center. A little bit farther west, along a trail,near a part of the falls, there is a old log cabin home and small barn--its used by the park service for something,but, to my knowledge its closed for visitors--I don't ever recall going in it. That's all I really know, or can remember--sorry.
 
Thanks guys, you helped a great deal.
Farid
 
Do you remember the merry-go-round at the park that had a brass ring?
