Lewistown, a lively trading center for both farmers and ranchers, is considered to be the hub of Central Montana. The address of 1105 W. Main in Downtown Lewistown is the exact center of Montana.
Agriculture remains a key to Lewistown’s economy. Winter wheat, feed barley, and some spring wheat comprise most of the local production. Fergus County has the state’s largest acreage dedicated solely to growing hay.
Located along the Big Spring Creek at the foot of the Judith, Big Snowy, and Moccasin Mountains, Lewistown has one of the prettiest settings in the state. The town is endowed with graceful turn-of-the-century architecture that is a tribute to the fantastic backdrop of the scenery surrounding it and bears testimony to long-standing stability. From the spectacular mountain ranges abundant with elk and deer to its fertile valleys full of pronghorn, waterfowl, and wild turkeys, this is a hunter’s paradise.
