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)
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.
