“a center for education and cultural enrichmen”
For more than 100 years, Paris Gibson Square has served as a center for education and cultural enrichment for Great Falls and the surrounding rural communities. Dedicated in 1896, the magnificent sandstone structure originally served as Central High School for 34 years and then as Paris Gibson Junior High for 45 years. Although it served only 46 students its first year, Paris Gibson and other city founders erected the building as a monument not only to the importance of education but to the vision of what Great Falls would someday become. In 1977, community volunteers renovated the historic Paris Gibson Square building, now a nationally registered historical landmark, as a community center to celebrate art, history and culture.
This free museum is nice! We loved the permanent installation of Lee Steen’s “tree people”. The other exhibits are contemporary and modern art. One three levels but there’s an elevator. Outdoor sculptures too. Free parking.
