The Alexander Settlers Museum Showcases Summer Events


The Alexander Settlers Museum on the Lewis and Clark Trail, formerly known as the Lewis and Clark Trail Museum, is excited to announce programming at the museum every weekend through Labor Day.

Melissa Teel-Hartman will be offering readings in North Dakota for the first time ever on July 22 and 23. Melissa, who works out of Spearfish, South Dakota, will provide guideposts for soul-inspired healing during her sessions. Private sessions are available both Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23 for those interested in meeting with Melissa one-on-one. A group session is also available on Friday, July 22 at 7:30pm. Private sessions are available for $60 per person, and tickets to the group session are $45 per person.

On Saturday, July 30, Williston musician Keesha Renna will perform from 7-9 p.m. on the front lawn of the museum. Everyone is welcome, and freewill donations will be accepted at the concert. Keesha believes that North Dakota, and especially the Bakken region, has a sound of its own, a sound she is inspired by. She is part of an anthology of musicians whose CD was recently released, titled, “Dakota Tales.”

The following week, on Saturday Aug. 6, the museum will host a wine glass painting class at 4 p.m. Each participant will create two unique glasses that they can take home that night. The class costs $20 per person, and registration is necessary.

On August 14, 20 and 27, rangers from Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site will provide Ranger Talks at the museum. Topics will range from the creation of the national historic site to public history to interpretation. Each talk will take place at 2 p.m., and will be free and open to the public.

Also on August 20, the museum will host a canvas painting class at 4 p.m. Participants will learn how to create a “Starry Night Deer.” The class costs $25 per person, and registration is necessary.

North Dakota favorite, Jessie Veeder, will perform on the front lawn of the museum on Friday, August 26 at 7 p.m. This special event allows members of the museum to receive free admission to hear Jessie sing. Those who are not members can become members the night of the event to gain admission into the concert. Jessie recently received the “Favorite Folk Artist” award at the North Dakota Music awards, and her fourth album, “Northern Lights,” is on sale now!

During our final open weekend, the Alexander Settlers Museum will sell ice cream sundaes and hotdogs during the Alexander Old Settlers’ Day celebration on Saturday, September 3. Ice cream will be available at the museum from 1-3 p.m., and hotdogs will be available from 5-6 p.m.
