Blink And You’ll Miss These 10 Teeny Tiny Towns In Montana
Montanans know a thing or two about small town living. After all, we live in a state that has more cows than people. But the towns on this list are tiny by any standards… in fact, if you’re not from the area, you’ve probably never heard of them. Or maybe you’ve driven right by them without ever noticing they were there.
243. As of 2016, that's how many people lived in this Sanders County spot located near the Idaho border.
Fishtail sits in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains. While the population is less than 500, it has a couple of well-known spots, like Cowboy Bar and the Fishtail General Store.
The home of Elkhorn Hot Springs has a population of 73. Officially speaking, the population density is 0 people per square mile.
Looking for an Old West town? This little community of 400 people is still very much cowboy country.
A mere 197 people reside in Saco, which is located in Phillips County on Highway 2. Other than the delicacies at the Deli Shack, there's not much to it.
Drummond has a total area of 0.53 square miles. For reference, Bozeman has a total area of 19.15 square miles.
7. Two Dot
Immortalized by a Hank Williams song (1983's "Twodot"), this unincorporated community in Wheatland County is a beloved spot for the few people who grew up there.
The population of Radersburg is minuscule (66 at last count), but the surrounding scenery is incredible, especially on the nearby Crow Creek Falls trail.
This charming little Eastern Montana town got its name from a local rancher who branded his cattle with the image of a circle.
Named for its first postmaster, Clarence Proctor, this quiet community sits nestled between the Salish and Mission mountains. There are just 5 people per square mile here.
We’re lucky to live in a state with so many charming small towns.
These are some of our most picturesque places with low populations.
