Brain Teaser Question

Which Montana town’s name is best represented by Morse Code for the letter “I”?

(answer found at the end of this post)

Featured Facts

The state of Montana is blessed with a litany of small towns with unique names.  One town was named for the “pair of dots” design of an area rancher’s cattle brand.  

Here are some interesting facts about this small town in the Treasure State:

  • Population of 26 (2020 Census).
  • Located along the Musselshell River in the central region of the state.
  • The town’s property was donated by an area rancher, George R. Wilson.
  • The town was founded in 1900.

In an interesting and related note, one other Montana community is named for a rancher’s cattle brand.  The town of Circle, which is located in the northeastern region between the communities of Glendive and Wolf Point, is named after the circle-shaped brand of an area ranch.

 

Answer to Brain Teaser Question

Two Dot

This is also the name of this mystery town in Montana.  Rancher George R. Wilson, who donated the land for the town from his vast land holdings, also went by the name of Two Dot Wilson.

  1. I didn’t have a clue about this brain teaser. I did know Morse Code pretty well at one time — I had to learn it for my HAM license — but I’ve mostly forgotten it now, and I never, ever would have expected Two Dot as a town name!
