Havre prides itself in its #1 resource its people.

Located along Montana's Hi-Line - Havre symbolizes what Montana is all about - herds of cattle, endless fields of wheat, a forever rolling prairie, mountains in the distance and remoteness all tucked under Montana's Big Sky.

Havre began over 100 years ago as the first trains forged across the Great Plains. The Great Northern Railroad, a creation of James J. Hill arrived in Havre, October of 1890. The Great Northern Railroad had a huge effect on Havre as it quickly became the transportation hub of the area, providing goods and supplies to the area trappers, miners and military stationed at Fort Assinniboine, 6 miles southwest of town.

Although agriculture is the undisputed financial mainstay in the area, the economy is diversified with farming, ranching, hospital and health services, education, professional and retail business, manufacturing, and railroad industries. Havre has become the anchor of the Hi-Line, as its largest city, as it serves communities within 100 miles.

Havre is more than an agriculture-based town, as visitors will find plenty of opportunities to shop, explore the areas culture and history. Favorites include the Havre Beneath the Streets & Railroad Museum, Fort Assinniboine, a 2,000 year-old Buffalo Jump, the H. Earl Clack Museum, Montana Actors Theatre and a walk through our historic downtown and residential areas. Community events such as the Rocky Boy Pow Wow, the Great Northern Fair, with rodeo action and Havre Festival Day are enjoyed locals and visitors alike. MSU-Northern and area schools add to the list of many things available for entertainment and culture.

Visitors can browse through locally owned stores, explore area history visiting with a local at a coffee shop, while in the distance the sounds of trains can be heard moving products to east and west destinations.

Recreational activities abound for visitors and those making Havre home. Hiking, camping, fishing and boating are all popular summer pastimes, and hunters from across Montana and beyond flock to Havre and the surrounding area to hunt. Spend a day alpine or cross-country skiing in the Bear Paw Mountains located south of town. Hockey leagues for the young and young at heart take place at the Havre Ice Dome.
Enjoy the luxury of having nature out your backdoor, alongside ongoing cultural and community activities. Havre offers residents and visitors a safe, friendly and affordable atmosphere where everyone feels at home.
