Huson in Missoula County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
The Ninemile Remount Depot
The Remount's upper hayfield was used to train smokejumpers in the early years of the famous firefighting crews. More often than not, droning Ford TriMotor airplanes had to buzz the field to clear it of grazing livestock before the jumpers could hit the silk.
In 1980, Ninemile was listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its traditional architecture and its role in Forest Service, Civilian Conservation Corps and local history. Ninemile is still a working ranger station
Erected by Lolo National Forest, U.S. Forest Service.
