Students and staff at Northside School are gearing up for the Wolf Point Centennial by participating in a school-wide door decorating contest.
They will decorate classroom doors or areas near their doors to represent important people, events or buildings from Wolf Point’s history, including pre-1914 events that were important to the development of this community. When planning for their decorations, classes will learn about the history of Wolf Point.
Students, staff and community members can vote for their favorite doors by dropping coins in labeled containers. Rona Stevens’ class is decorating the containers. The winning class will use the prize money to enhance their field trips at the end of the school year. People visiting Northside for any reason may view the doors and vote, or wait until the Celebration of Learning, to be held later in May.
Northside School will also invite members of the Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture and the elected school board members.

How Wolf Point Got Its Name

Want to take a ride on “Red Cloud” Steamboat? Only $300 for your fare. Janna Elliott’s sixth-grade class at Northside School has chosen to display the Steamboat era and how the town of Wolf Point got its name for the Centennial Celebration.
In 1819, four steamboats left St. Louis, Mo., bound for the mouth of Yellowstone River, but the waters of the Missouri River proved to be too strong for the steamboats.
After the Civil War, steamboats gliding along the Missouri River became a common sight and their design was different from earlier steamboats; they were called “mountain boats.”
These mountain boats were designed differently than the steamboats from the east. The mountain boats were designed shorter and the hull was shallower to help with the shallowness of the river and sandbars.
In the winter of 1867-1868, the temperatures plummeted below freezing and the trappers could not skin the wolves. They piled them near the river for the spring thaw.
As the pile grew taller the steamboat captains would remark, “Just around the point of the wolves.”
The landmark became well known and the town was called Wolf Point.
(Editor’s Note: This in one of numerous tales of how Wolf Point got its name. Northside School sixth-grade student August Spotted Wolf wrote this story and Logan McConnell typed it.)
