These 7 Old Montana Railroad Towns Are Still As Charming As Ever

Considering Montana was once home to three transcontinental streamliners, quite a few of our cities and towns either are or once were considered “railroad towns,” meaning they originated (or were greatly improved) because they were a railway stop. And many of those towns have maintained their original charms, offering a glimpse into local history as well as some great modern attractions.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
