Out of all the small towns scattered across Montana, is this one the loveliest?

If you have lived in Montana for any time, you know how much locals love our small towns. Montana towns range from a population of tens of people to thousands, but each one has its distinct personality and atmosphere.

Whether you travel on the interstate or a side highway, you will probably run into several small towns on your drive.

Many of us grew up in these small towns and know the highs and lows of these places, but most have a special place in our hearts and memories.

Usually, towns like Whitefish, Livingston, or other places get picked for lists like this, but this is a nice change of pace. Stevensville deserves some love, and we are happy to see it.
