I am terribly frustrated living in Liberal dominated MN and am considering a move to Montana or Alaska. I'm looking at a place in Phillips County and am wondering if any folks out there have any knowledge of the community, people, lifestyles.

Default Moving

Hi! Just saw your questions so will try to answer what I can. I live in Valley County which is just east of Phillips County. Most of the area is very similar--- rural countryside with rolling hills and prairie land --- some farming and some ranching. This area is quite conservative but also very friendly and welcome people from all parts of life. I think Glasgow (where I live) is very progressive and has lots to offer --- we have some new industry moving here, great schools (in fact the only school that has increased enrollment east of the mountains in MT), great sports offerings, hunting and fishing, recreation at Fort Peck Lake etc. Not sure where in Philips County you were looking at but at least the climate and countryside is similar to what I mentioned. Yes we can get cold but if you live in MN, it is very similar to the cold you have there.
Hope this helps!

Default thanks cowgirl

I am primarily wondering about the population, I am assuming like most small towns, folks are friendly. I lived in WY for a number of years and found the "locals" didn't like folks coming from other areas...I never could figure that out. I am looking at a place in Saco (or near it). My wife and I both love hunting and fishing, and here in MN, it's getting tough to find public hunting areas and most public access ramps at the local lakes are filled with citiots on the weekends. I did a little research and was awful surprised when I looked at the MT state website for sex offenders, there appears to be quite a few in and around Phillips county. Anyway, thanks again for your thoughts!

Yes, I would say most people are friendly --- Saco is quite small and is a few miles west of here. There isn't much there except bar, post office, school and antique store. I don't know what kind of a processing plant is there but it does emit a strong unpleasant odor. You are quite a few miles from Fort Peck but hunting would be good there. Have you checked places along the lake and river --- Pines area, Fort Peck, Park Grove, Duck Creek etc. Places are reasonable becuase the lake has been down due to the drought. As for sex offenders, that is a little suprising, however Philips county does include some reservation.

dont move to whitefish. It is too liberal for your liking. As would be any center of education such as Missoula or Bozeman.

Any affordable housing in Glasgow, Mt.? In the $60,000 - $70,000 range. I have an acre where I'm at and seems like Mt. has more non-built up land but more expensive per lot. Not looking for more than half acre, seem likes the lots are much small. Looking to get back to the small town atmosphere like I grew up in.
