Our Story
In 1890, Welsh immigrant Robert Vaughn, the first European settler in the county, who had become wealthy in the ranching business in the Sun River Valley outside of Great Falls, perceived a need in the downtown area for the “most advanced livery stable in the West.” This was the genesis of the Arvon Block, named for his daughter Arvonia. The building housed a livery stable, freight transfer office, hotel and vegetable market. Vaughn, who by that time had received the nickname “The Celtic Cowboy” by the press, would go on to become one of Great Falls’ earliest philanthropists and most prominent citizens. Fast-forward 123 years and we proudly bring you The Celtic Cowboy Pub and Restaurant and the Hotel Arvon (coming soon), evoking the lively times of the past in what is now one of the very few remaining buildings from the early days of Great Falls. We hope to see you here!
What the People of Great Falls are Saying

“It took 130 years for my city to open an establishment of this caliber? I’d’ve founded it myself if I’d known the board of fare was thus refined.”
Charlie Russell

“The chow is top-notch, and I’m sure Nancy won’t mind if I buy a round for the boys. I wonder if this place would take a little watercolor in trade?”
Robert Vaughn

“The best eatery to open in this town in a century; I’d travel six thousand miles for it. The location has a pleasantly familiar quality. Nice logo, too.”

    From ALL of us at The Celtic Cowboy and the Darkhorse Hall and Wine Snug a Very Happy a Thanksgiving!

    Phillips Brooks (1835-1893) ~
    Stand up, on this Thanksgiving Day, stand upon your feet. Believe in man. Soberly and with clear eyes, believe in your own time and place. There is not, and there never has been a better time, or a better place to live in.
