Lived here all of my life. There is an amazing access to the surrounding wilderness, rich in game( moose, deer, antelope). Though if you want to settle here, then expect to buy land or a home ( which ain't cheap), there is no rentals around here

A small, Montana town with a good school. There is a good community feel where everyone knows each other. Everyone helps each other.
This area is very small which results in small traffic. A down-side of being small is that a transportation bus, train, or taxi is not available. The nearest town that would offer a bus, train, or taxi is roughly an hour and a half away. Many stores are walk-able but since parking is not an issue, most individuals drive. Recently, there has been construction on Main Street which has slowed traffic along with business.
