Eureka Montana

Located in: Glacier Country

Eureka was known as the Tobacco Plains, originally home to the Kootenai Indians. The northern section of U.S. Highway 93 was originally an Indian trail and was later used by fur traders and pack trains for travel between Missoula and Vancouver, B.C. David Thompson was the first whiteman to see the area in 1808. Homesteaders began to come in the 1880s.

The first buildings were built on the banks of theTobacco River. In 1923 a large sawmill which supported the town's economy burnt down. Since then the area has become a great supplier of Christmas trees.

This area offers some of the state's scenic treasures, tucked away in Montana's forested northwest corner. Ten Lakes Scenic Area treats visitors to mountain drives, pristine lakes and abundant fishing. For area history, visit the Tobacco Valley Historic Village near the south end of downtown.

Elevation: 2,566 feet.

Eureka is located in the far northwest corner of Montana, eight miles south of the Canadian border on U.S. Highway 93.
