James J. Hill Gift Shop
Commemorate your stay with us by purchasing ‘Made in Montana’souvenirs from our James J. Hill Gift Shop. We offer a wide selection of Izaak Walton sweatshirts, T-shirts, books, and handmade jewelry.
Rail fans will find the perfect gifts of Great Northern memorabilia, including sweatshirts, engineers’ caps, and others. Our most stunning offering is the Great Northern Railroad dinnerware reproductions. Both lines of dinnerware are reproduced by Syracuse China, the original manufacturer exclusively for the Izaak Walton Inn. In the heyday of passenger railroading, the dining cars on both the Empire Builder and the Western Star had linen tablecloths and napkins, finger bowls, and cheddar cheese in crocks to dig out and put on your piece of hot apple pie. The dinnerware was both beautiful and serviceable.
Glory of the West Dinnerware
The GN used this shadowtone dinnerware on its Empire Builder from 1940-1957. All pieces have the Glory of the West backstamp as well as the Izaak Walton Inn backstamp.
These elegant pieces may be purchased either as a place setting (*) or as a single piece. The pattern on each piece was inspired by an actual scene in Glacier National Park.
Mountains and Flowers Dinnerware
Each piece is hand decorated and features scenes from Glacier Park. All reproduction pieces have the original Great Northern backstamp, as well as the Izaak Walton Inn backstamp.
They are available either as a place setting (*) or as a single piece. The pattern on each piece has used the red and gold Columbine, the Globeflower, and the Springbeauty. The 10 ¼" plate has all three flowers plus the full backstamp describing the flowers.
