Plentywood Gulches Montana


Plentywood is a high plain community tucked away in the northeast corner of Montana and serves as a 24-hour port entry into Canada. Approximately 2,200 people dwell in this town which has very little water and a few mountains. 

Called the "gateway to Saskatchewan," this small town claims grain and livestock as the kings of the local economy.

You might wonder how a little town sitting on the high prairie would get a name like this. The story goes that a bunch of cowboys and a cook were attempting to build a fire out of buffalo chips. Old Dutch Henry came along and told them “If you’ll go a couple of miles up this creek, you’ll find plenty wood.” When it came time to name the town, these words of wisdom were remembered.
