MHC 2015 Conference Session "What's in a Name?"

At the Montana History Conference 2015 held in Bozeman I presented a talk on behalf of the Cooke City Montana Museum:

Like many communities that began as mining towns and were later reshaped by tourism, Cooke City has accumulated its share of myths. Of these, none is more mysterious than the unsubstantiated but popular belief that the town once bore the name of “Shoo Fly.” Kelly Hartman, director of the Cooke City Museum, explores some of the legends surrounding Cooke City.

These presentations are recorded, so I am pleased to be able to share my talk with all of you!
