White Sulphur Springs, MontanaSmith River

White Sulphur Springs sits on the Kings Hill Scenic Highway (Montana Highway 89) in  west-central Montana.  Midway between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, this stretch of highway is considered one of the most scenic drives in the state.  The town was named after, and has long been revered for its sulfurous hot springs.  According to Crow Chief Plenty Coups, the hot springs were the destination of Native Americans who would travel to make pilgrimages for medicinal mud baths.  Later in 1886, the site was stumbled upon by James Brewer, who was traveling through the area on the Carroll Trail.  Like the Crow, Brewer saw the location’s potential and built a stage stop.  These same hot springs still bubble up into White Sulphur Springs’ City Park today.White Sulphur Horses

White Sulphur Springs is located in the Smith River Valley and banked on three sides by the Little Belt, Big Belt and Castle Mountains.  The town rests in the foothills of the Rockies at an elevation of 5,100.  Running through the valley is the Smith River, one of America’s premier floating and trout streams.  Fishermen and women from all over are drawn to its banks to fish for brook trout.  As fertile as the Smith River is abundant, the valley’s rich soil and moderate climate make the area well-suited for agriculture.  The area is home to numerous large ranches that graze livestock and raise grain crops.

White Sulphur Springs’ proximity to other towns and area attractions makes it a popular choice for those who want the familiarity of a small town but desire access to conveniences found in larger communities.  With approximately 950 people, it’s the county seat and the largest town in Meagher County.  It has the small-town feel that may of its inhabitants and guests desire, but is still only a brief drive to Montana’s Capitol, Helena.  Central Montana is known as much for its unique terrain as its family ranches and the strong work ethic of the people who have worked the areas land for decades.

Central Montana is known for its abundance and variety of wildlife.  Whether you enjoy hunting or photography, White Sulphur Springs is near the heart of it all.  There are ample opportunities to enjoy nature with the Big Belt Mountains and the Helena National Forest to the west.  To the east is the Lewis & Clark National Forest, to the northeast the Little Belt Mountains and to the southeast, The Castle Mountains.  The Smith River transects the eastern and western halves of Meagher County.White Sulphur Barn
