This picture was borrowed from the Museum.  It is a picture of Forman’s Gun Club, taken in September of 1908, showing the catch of game birds along with the families and dogs all related to the club.  The First National Bank building is in the background, which was located where the current Sargent County Bank now stands.  Note the building to the far right; it is the Methodist Church, which was located where the Laundromat now stands.

Thousands of items pertaining to Sargent County can be seen at the Sargent County Museum located here in Forman.
