Location: Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge
In 1868, Gilman Sawtell started a dude ranch and Henry’s Lake fishery that did much to develop this natural resort area.
Sawtell did everything from supplying swans for New York’s Central Park zoo to building a network of roads for tourist access to Yellowstone National Park. His commercial fishery served Montana mining markets. His pioneer Henry’s Lake ranch was a major attraction here for a decade before rail service brought more settlers to this area.
