Backroads of Montana - Program Updates
Episode Seven “Havre to Hamilton” (1995) – Havre Beneath the Streets is still open and has some new exhibits. Frank DeRosa, the friendly gentlemen who guided us beneath the streets, passed away in March 2005. The Fondue King still fires up his pot of boiling oil for Pitchfork Fondue in the Hi-Line area, although the price has gone up a little.

That abandoned railroad trestle has become perilously rusted and weakened by the Montana weather. Jazz pianist Jean Wrobel, the "Jewel of the Bitterroot Valley" died in 2004, and Bob Corbett, the proud designer of the Shiniest Oldsmobile on Earth died in January, 2008.
