For more than 150 years, members of the Gehring family have been working the land in the hills northwest of Helena. Today, Bill Gehring carries on that tradition, raising cattle and bison on more than 2,800 acres.

“I feel like I’m living my dream,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to be a rancher.”

Now, this century-long heritage has been officially recognized, as the Gehring Ranch was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Gehring family celebrated the designation on Saturday, along with some of the other people who helped make it possible.

“I sure can’t thank them enough,” Gehring said.
