Brady is the grain marketing and distribution center for 5,000 acres of farm-land. This area is watered by the Bynum Irrigation Project. Water is passed to Brady area ranches and farms through Muddy Creek from the Bynum Reservoir 30 miles to the west. The first post office was established in 1910 with Charles Johnson as the postmaster.
Brady is located in northern Montana, north of Great Falls and south of Shelby on I-15.
