637 Third Avenue (1914): George Coulter Home.  This modernized Craftsman home has a colorful Havre history.  Mr. Coulter was a pit boss for Havre’s notorious bar, the Montana Concert Hall, more commonly known as the Honky Tonk.  He bought this home in 1914, and rented the home to boarders while living in part of it. By one account, the boarders were mostly prostitutes and the home was made complete by adding a gambling operation on the first floor.  Mrs. Coulter later was shot by a male boarder, who then shot himself.  Mrs. Coulter recovered from her wounds.  This home reflects both Havre’s architectural past and a seamier part of Havre’s history that some would rather not remember.
