Lavina is the center of a farming and ranching community where everyone is considered a friend and neighbor.
Lavina, on the north-south route, was an early trading post and stage stop, founded in the late 1800s by Walter Burke, who operated the stage line. When the railroad came through in the early 1900s, many of the buildings in town were built, the historic Adams Hotel being one of the first. This famous landmark still sits on Main Street as a tribute to this once bustling town.
.The Musselshell River is noted for its catfish and trout. Hunting and fishing licenses can be purchased at the Lavina Bar. Stop and fish in some of the lakes and streams or hunt the various wildlife that is in the area.
Lavina is located in central of Montana, at junctions of US Highway 12 and MT Highway 3 between Harlowton and Billings.
