Ok so Wolf Point seems to not get a whole lot of support

The schools are not a concern, as the kids are out of that age bracket. We are just looking for a nice town to settle in, and the Eastern Montana area is where the jobs are that we are trained to work in. Plentywood seems to be off by itself....any thoughts?

What do you mean by off by itself? If you are talking isolation that is Eastern Montana. I am convinced the state got their Big Sky Country nickname in that part of the state. Just take a drive on I-94 and you'll see what I mean.

"By itself" I mean no other towns nearby. At least on the 2, there are other small towns that dot the highway.

From your screen name, you must like cats! I do too. Why not Billings; jobs and city have a LOT more to offer.

I would not be highly inclined to use Wolf Point and "nice town" in the same phrase. Granted, I have not spent a lot of time there, but in my numerous drives across the highline, Wolf Point has been one of the towns I normally choose not to stop in. It seems a lot more dirty and run-down than, say, Glasgow to the west or Culbertson to the east. What I've heard from folks who live in the area and have spent time there supports that impression.

Keep in mind a lot of those small towns that dot the highway are extremely small towns that may have a gas station if you're lucky. I'm not trying to scare you off, but this part of the state is very remote.

You may want to check out the statistics on Wolf Point.

http://www.city-data.com/city/Wolf-Point-Montana.html

Note it is a no growth area. Only two building permits for very cheap houses in 15 years, is one thing to consider.
