My husband and I are considering retiring and relocating to Montana. We are looking for a community where housing and the cost of living is reasonable. Shelby appears to be a nice little town. I do have a concern about the privatized CCA prison located in the community. How long has the prison been in the community? Has it affected the quality of life in Shelby?

Default Relocate to Shelby

I do not know much about Shelby but only know that when a prison was discussed in this area it was voted down becuase of the fear of the problems it may bring to the area. If you are undecided, I would suggest you ck the NE corner of the state. I live in Glasgow --- it is rural countryside and a great community!! Cost of living here is about 1/2 what it is in the western part of the state. Right now jobs are good here due to some building projects and recreational area. We have quite a number of people moving here that are retiring due to the lake, low crime, and opportunites for retirees. If you want more info. just let me know!

Default shelby/glasgow

My sister-in-law lives in Chester, MT and I asked her about Shelby. I don't know too much about it myself - except that it's a nice town. She said that the prison hasn't been a problem. Glasgow is a nice town also. My niece lives there - loves it. sdcowgirl is right about it. My husband and I have talked about retiring there also - quite a few years from now though. We're from Fairfield, MT but live in WY now. Will probably end up back in Fairfield as it's a great town also.
