Harlowton Montana

Located in: Central Montana

Harlowton was named after Richard Harlow, who built the “Jaw bone” railroad branch to Lewistown. Buildings were made of stone from the nearby quarry. Harlowton was first named Merino after the abundance of that breed of sheep found in the area. Sheep and wool was a large production for the area. A large flour mill also provided economic value for the town.

Harlowton is a convenient stop at the junction of U.S. Highways 12 and 191. Of special interest are the E-57B Electric Train Park commemorating the longest stretch of electric railway in North America, and a pioneer bronze sculpture entitled 'And They Called the Land Montana.'

The Upper Mussellshell Museum includes a general store, Indian artifacts, pioneer home, and Avaceratops lammersi dinosaur display (632-4694). Nez Perce Trail and Chief Joseph Park, off U.S. Highway 12, offers camping, scenic walkways, a fishing pond and playground.

Elevation: 4,167 feet.

Harlowton is located in central Montana, 44 miles north of Big Timber on U.S. Highway 191.
