Annual Heritage Celebration

A Recap of the 2014 Heritage Celebration

The Yellowstone Historic Center's Thirteenth Annual Heritage Celebration was held on July 19, 2014 in West Yellowstone, Montana in the historic Union Pacific Dining Lodge. A great time was had by all as we celebrated the history of the Union Pacific Dining Lodge, "The Crown Jewel of West Yellowstone."

Over 160 guests attended this years event and had the opportunity to hear Dan Harbeke, Director of Public Afairs for the Union Pacific Railroad, speak about the history of the Union Pacific and it's contributions to the heritage of travel to West Yellowstone.

We thank everyone who helped make the evening a great success. Please take a minute to review this year's supporters listed below who contributed their financial support to the evening. We also thank all the businesses and individuals who contributed auction items for the Dessert Auction, the Silent Auction, and the Live Auction. Finally, a big round of thanks goes to everyone who attended the event and contributed to the fun-filled evening through their presence and by participating in the auctions!

We hope to see you next year at the Fourteenth Annual Heritage Celebration, which will be held on July 18th, 2015.
