Description

Clark Grey, who was born in Anaconda, Montana, in the late 1800s, discusses his family’s move to the Bitterroot Valley, Montana, in 1899. He talks about his parents’ involvement in the valley’s apple industry, and buying land near Hamilton, Montana, and establishing an apple orchard. Grey describes the varieties of apples grown in the valley, how they were shipped, and the market that the valley’s industry secured with New York City. He concludes by recalling the decline of the valley’s apple industry.
