I've seen a book somewhere before about Montana place names. I'm a rail fan and found this website that has a link to Montana place names and here is a link to a page on the site that has the link to the place names.

Montana Railroad History

Thanks.

I've passed along that link, MontanaPlaceNames.htm, back to the person who gave me the link for the book that's in my opening comment on this thread.

That person is a full-blooded Crow, and knows many, many interesting things about Montana history.

Yea I know a couple of old timers on the Flathead Rez who are Salish and they love to sit and tell all sorts of stories about Hot Springs when he was a kid. During Homesteader days in the first few years the Indians would ride over from mission valley on horses and drink whiskey and shoot out the street lights from their horses with rifles ! 12 years ago when I moved to that town, on Homesteader days on Saturday night there would be fights on several corners at once and bottles would be flying from one side of the street to the other. One year two ranch hands pulled their guns on each other but neither fired.

Here are some pictures of Montana history. I took all of the pics on C.S.K.T. lands except the one of the rock formations near Valier.

The Camas Prairie school gym. I was told that when the number of students went from 6 to 3 they closed the school and the gym.


Rumor also has it that there were tepee rings at Rock City just north of Valier but folks made fire rings by moving the tepee ring rocks.
Pic below is of the hoodoos at Rock City.


The grave markers below are in the Ventling cemetery on the "H" hill adjacent to Hot Springs.
These are graves of some of the white settlers who homesteaded on the Reservation after the federal government opened up the reservation to homesteading by whites. The town of Hot Springs can be seen in the distance of one of the grave marker pics.






This old log cabin was called the Nez Perce Cabin and it sits above the Lower Flathead River. The roof is gone now.

I'm surprised you would support a state-funded, government-driven institution like the Montana Historical Society. Insert sarcasm here.
