Publisher's Description

Among Montana’s most enduring legacies are the names assigned to its geographic features and places found on the state map. As long as humans have inhabited Montana they have named places. While the past two centuries have changed the way people live in Montana, the names given to some rivers, mountain ranges, cities, and towns have persisted, while others have changed with time. Naming Montana explores the origins of more than 1,000 Montana place names, drawing upon the knowledge of Montana Historical Society historians and the expertise of local historians from across the state. This new publication includes both geographic features, selected historic sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, historic photographs, and maps. The authors’ extensive research illuminates the stories behind the names of places that we call home.

Author Bio

For more than two years, five staff members from the Montana Historical Society Research Center in Helena researched Montana’s varied place names. Using a Montana state highway map as their guide, they set out to find the history behind the naming of more than 1,000 Montana places. Collectively, the authors represent decades of archival and historical research experience.
