Welcome to Hamilton Ranch
Historic Landscapes Endure
Amid this natural scenery, you stand in the heartland of western Montana's cattle country. Since the mid-1800s, Beaverhead County has been home to more cattle than most any other place in America. Headquarters at the foot of the slope before you, the Hamilton Ranch contains portions of a homestead established here in the late 1800s. Today, with the help of a program called Undaunted Stewardship®, the ranch preserves its historic sites and takes actions designed to maintain the landscape's body and soul. Welcome to a glimpse of the area's ghosts, its life and its future - enjoy your visit!
