It's the late 1800s in the Montana Territory. What does a madam have in common with a schoolteacher? "Two Girls Gossiping about Early Montana" answers this question. Mrs. Emma Slack Dickenson (Widhalm) and Madam Mary Gleim (Kaufman) come together wondering themselves what they might have to talk about. Strangely enough, they discover some parallels in their mutual experiences, as they each tell their stories. In time, they find themselves gossiping about events and people of the time, albeit from very different perspectives.
The park is 26 miles East of Missoula, off I-90 (exit 130)--follow signs to the park.
