Today, Laurin still has some of the old relics of its early years amid buildings of a
more modern time. On July 4, 1864, two members of the notorious Plummer gang were hanged here.
Additional information by Dennis Morse: The picture you published of a store front in Laurin Montana is of my Grandfathers store called Morse Bros. Merchantile. His name was Oliver Morse and his brother went by the name of Shorty. Oliver was a rancher in the area and also served on the school board. For some reason the locals have always pronounced the town name as Loray, perhaps because the founder (Laurin) was french.
