The smaller of our two event spaces, the Edmond Bradley named after a young black man who came to Fort Benton in the early 1870’s, built a modest house and married a Native American woman. He was a civilian volunteer, and only man killed in a notorious standoff with Chief Joseph, Looking Glass and their band of warriors on retreat to Canada in September of 1877. During his funeral procession the River Press noted, “the coffin was covered in black velvet, black fringe and silver mountings .” His remains were followed to the grave by nearly all the residents of Fort Benton. After his death his daughter was sent on steamboat to Connecticut to be with her grandmother and his wife returned to her Native people with their son.
