Discover Montana

Montana is a state diverse in its geography, culture, and history. From the history of mining and logging in the west, to the tales of the homestead era in the east, it is a land rich in stories of the past. From the western mountain ranges of the Rocky Mountains to the prairies and badlands of the east, it is a land of everchanging scenery. It's here that a culture of ranching and farming blends with a culture of arts and an urban small town lifestyle of it's cities and towns. Montana is huge in it's physical scale, almost 800 miles from the southeast corner to the northwest corner of the state; but small in population with less people in the entire state than are found in most U.S. urban areas with less than a million inhabitants spread across it's vast expanse. Recreation is year round here with a full range of winter activities, ski areas, snowmobile trails, and cross country ski trails, and provides endless opportunities for recreation in the warmer months with world class fishing, hiking and outdoor activities. Your Montana journey starts here.

Buffalo

The large, shaggy buffalo was the first resident of this community settled on the area’s rich, green hills. Appropriately named after the animal that once dominated the Montana landscape, Buffalo began operating a post office in 1890, but lack of residents forced its closure in 1893. 

Busby

Busby, located on the Cheyenne Reservation in southeastern Montana, was established in 1904. On June 24, 1876, Custer camped there before leaving to head north for the Indian encampment on the Little Big horn.

Butte

Butte’s history is revealed in its skyline, the omnipresent black steel headframes, and the gaping hole in the earth known as Berkeley Pit. These are two of the more vivid reminders of a town that started as a mining camp and grew to a city of over 100,000 by 1917.

Bynum

The town of Bynum took its name from Stephen Bynum, one of the early settlers in the area. The town today still has a one room schoolhouse with an enrollment of around 40 students.

Cameron is the namesake of the Cameron family who were early pioneers in the area. In the settlement originally known as Bear Creek, Addison Cameron owned a building that contained the post office, a general store and a dance hall upstairs.
