Glendale Headstone Photographs


December 1, 1893
at Lion City, Montana
The young family of Nicholas and Martha (Thomas) Bergstrom was decimated by a savage avalanche that swept off of Lion Mountain and through Lion City on the eve of December 3, 1893. Newspapers reported later that the event was the worst disaster ever to hit the state of Montana. Nicholas, son Earl and daughter Mabel were killed. Martha and their five month babe Edgar miraculously survived. More on this event can be found on our link titled "Historic Happenings."
 Nicholas Bergstrom Headstone
Likely the graves of the three Bergstrom's, are now marked only by a weathered old marker such as this, or perhaps just the wild sage that grows in abundance on the grounds.
