Residential District Overview
The Havre area was inhabited for many
centuries by many Native American tribes. With the building of Fort
Assiniboine in 1879 came the first white settlers. With the coming of the
railroad came more settlers and they became merchants, business people,
farmers, ranchers and entrepreneurs. As their finances increased so did the
need for permanent housing. These homes consisted of many
forms of popular architecture, some of which still proudly exist today. The Havre Residential Historic
District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in
The Havre/Hill County Historic
Preservation Commission hopes you enjoy both walking tour maps.
