535 Second Avenue (1919): Frank Buttrey Home.  Frank Buttrey, a well-known Havre businessman, opened the Fair store shortly after arriving with his wife, Jane, in 1902.  The Fair later gave way to the Buttrey Department Store.  Mr. Buttrey was quite diversified with his inventory and marketing, and soon Buttrey became one of Montana’s empires.  He also owned the second radio station in the United States, now KFBB television station.  He built this Colonial Revival residence in 1919 and subsequent owners have kept the home true to its original elegance. Their attention to detail earned them the 2001 Havre Historic Preservation Award.
