Avon

When a Welshman immigrated to this Montana area in the late 1800s, he was struck by its valleys and river and dubbed his new settlement “Avon” (meaning river in Welsh) as it reminded him of his native country. The area thrived, and in 1884, a post office began servicing the community. Today, the area is home to cattle and sheep ranchers and is a supply stop for miners.
