A State Rich In History
Statue of Lewis, Clark and Sacajawea at Fort Benton, MontanaMontana was initially inhabited by Native Americans for tens of thousands of years, and with the advent of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the Lewis and Clark Expedition set off to explore this immense tract of land in search of a water passage to the Pacific Ocean, which dramatically changed the course of history.  Much of Lewis and Clark's time, and much of their amazing adventures, happened in Montana.  

Following the Lewis and Clark Expedition, fur traders first came to Montana, followed by the miners of the Montana Gold Rush, then followed by the cattlemen.  The mighty railroads then came onto the scene, as well as farmers, hard rock miners and loggers. These hard working, brave people represent the heritage of Montana, and the present day offspring of these early settlers still carry with them these traits, and this heritage remains alive and well in Montana. Our past is very important to each Montanan and is part of our DNA, and there is a deep pride and love of "being Montanan" that is easy to sense as you travel throughout this great state.

This is the only physical evidence remaining of the entire Lewis and Clark Expedition, and it is located at Pompey's Pillar east of Billings, Montana.


The Wild West Preserved... Virginia City and Bannack
Virginia City MontanaDavid is a sixth generation Montanan, and his great great great grandparents were among the first settlers during the Montana Gold Rush of the early 1860's.

David's pioneer ancestors were members of the First Fisk Expedition in 1862, which brought them to 
Bannack, Montana.This was where gold was first discovered in Montana. They witnessed the birth of the State of Montana, and their story unfolded for the ages during the early days of the Great American West.

These early Montana Pioneers were the epitome of bravery, guts and willingness to follow ones dreams, and these brave souls built the foundation of what the present day people of Montana represent.

David is extremely proud of his Montana pioneer heritage, and the love we have for Montana is as vast and limitless as the "big sky" that watches over this magnificent land.

By the way, Virginia City, Montana is the largest preserved intact "ghost" town in America, and is an extremely popular tourist destination.  Bannack, Montana, located at Bannack State Park near Dillon, Montana, is equally as popular and is amazingly preserved and an unforgettable experience for visitors interested in Montana pioneer history.

Proud Native American Heritage
Native Americans have lived in Montana for tens of thousands of years, and are an integral part of what we know as Montana today.  There are seven Federal Indian Reservations Montana, each having immeasurable pride in their Native American Heritage as well as pride of being present day Montanans.

Battle of the Little Bighorn Re-Enactment, Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument
Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument near Hardin, Montana.

Montana Native AmericanDuring the days of the "Indian Wars", there were many conflicts between the U.S. Calvary and the Native Americans.  The Battle of the Little Bighorn is probably the most famous of all the battles.  

Also known as "Custer's Last Stand", this battlefield is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Montana, and is located at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument near Hardin, Montana.  


Other famous battlefields include the Big Hole Battlefield in western Montana, and the Bear Paw Battlefield in Northern Montana.  The Bear Paw Battlefield is where Nez Perce Chief Joseph surrendered in 1877 and said these famous words:
 



More Deer, Elk and Antelope than People!

There’s not a lot of people that live in Montana relative to the massive size of this state.  Montana only has a population density of 6 people per
Montana Pronghorn Antelopesquare mile.  In fact, Montana has more elk, deer and antelope than people!   Montana is very sparsely populated with many, many miles of wide open spaces between ranches and towns.  This is part of the charm of Montana.


Magnificent Scenery
Montana has some of the most remarkable scenery in North America, and it's all yours for the viewing.  

From jagged, towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains, to the vast, wide open spaces of the Prairie, to huge bodies of water such as Flathead Lake and Fort Peck Lake, and to some of the most pristine rivers in America.  Montana is waiting for you to explore and enjoy!

Amazing Wildlife
Grizzly Bear, Glacier National Park Montana.
Montana Grizzly Bear.

Montana bugling bull elk.Montana has the most species of mammals in the United States, and is home to the largest grizzly bear population in the lower 48 states. There is tremendous diversity of wildlife and plant life in Montana due to the fact that two Continental Divides actually intersect in Montana, bringing with this intersection their ecosystems.  

This intersection occurs on Triple Divide Peak in Glacier National Park, which creates an incredible amount of bio-diversity.  Pacific Northwest wildlife, Arctic-Hudson Bay wildlife, Great Plains wildlife and Rocky Mountain wildlife can be found in Montana because of this “collision” of the Continental Divides, and Montana is the only place in North America where this occurs.

Elk, grizzly bears, black bears, mountain lions, bison (buffalo), pronghorn, whitetail deer, mule deer, moose, wolves, bighorn sheep and mountain goats are just a few of the animals that call Montana "home".
