BIG TIMBER -

After five years of development, the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame & Western Heritage Center cultural center will not move forward.

The cultural center in Big Timber has been halted by "unmitigated wetland issues that were discovered through development efforts at the site," said a statement from the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame & Western Heritage Center Board of Directors.

According to the statement, the landowners have chosen to terminate the lease to purchase contracts.

No path forward to develop the building site exists.

The termination, according to the board, reverts the land and all site improvements made during the lease to the landowners. 

"The Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame & Western Heritage Center will continue to build upon the success of our Hall of Fame Induction program while we strategize next steps," the statement said. "Our mission 'to honor our cowboy way of life, American Indian cultures and collective Montana Western heritage' remains undeterred. Our Trustees across Montana are voting on the 2017 Hall of Fame Induction Class and the results will be announced in the coming month..

The induction ceremony will be held February 3, 2018 at the Best Western Heritage Inn in Great Falls.
