Fort Benton is located on the banks of the Missouri River in the "Golden Triangle" area of North Central Montana. Established in 1846 as an American Fur Company Trading Post, it is one of the oldest communities in Montana.
Fort Benton and the surrounding countryside is a beautiful area to live, work or visit. We are the gateway to the Wild and Scenic Upper Missouri River and the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, and only moments away from the Highwood Mountains and Square Butte Recreational Area.
Fort Benton offers you genuine small town friendliness. As you stroll down the levee and Front Street, you will find friendly people and inviting shops filled with everything a persons needs for their stay.
People or business' looking to relocate here are always welcome. Fort Benton has a number of great assets to offer. Our schools are some of the best with a great sports program and excellent teaching staff. The CCPA (Chouteau County Performing Arts) brings fine entertainment to our community. Our hospital/nursing home is a five star rated facility and provides most medical services needed for those in need. There are too many assets to list here but look on the Members Page for all the services available for our guests and residents.
Frontier history comes alive in Fort Benton...let your imagination carry you away as you walk along the Steamboat Levee. Lewis & Clark & The Corp of Discovery walked on this same river bank almost two hundred years ago. Or Imagine of the sight of a dozen steamboats docked along the levee and the noise and clamor as their freight is loaded onto oxen trains soon bound for points through out the Northwest.
