Tongue River Montana

Decker

When early 1890s settlers applied to Washington for the establishment of a post office in the area, the preferred community name was “Badger.” However, when Washington granted the residents’ request, the town and post office name had been changed to Decker. Located on the Tongue River near the Wyoming state line, Decker is renowned for its rich coal deposits and the Decker Coal Company.
