Montana Historical Society seeks to display Unabomber cabin

October 11, 2019

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana society has said it is interested in the cabin where the Unabomber lived after a Washington, D.C. museum announced plans to return it in 2020 to the FBI, its current owner.

The Independent Record reported Thursday that Theodore Kaczynski’s cabin has been on display in Newseum since 2008, but the museum is expected to close at the end of the year amid financial issues.

The FBI says it has plans to display the cabin at a museum called FBI Experience, but the Montana Historical Society has said it hopes to somehow bring the cabin back to the state.

Authorities say Kaczynski built and moved into the cabin in 1971 where he lived for 25 years while orchestrating 16 attributed bombings killing three and injuring another 23 people nationwide.
