The Charming Montana General Store That’s Been Open Since The Civil War Days

Several decades before Montana achieved statehood, the Civil War was being waged between our northern and southern states. And while the Montana Territory had little to do with said war, our early settlers were exploring, working, and building lives here in what is now the Treasure State. Rank’s Mercantile has been around since those days, making it the oldest continually operated general store in Montana.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
