Loring Montana

Located in: Missouri River Country

Loring is a tiny picturesque community six miles from the Port of Morgan and the Canadian border crossing.

Loring began as a station on the Great Northern Railroad. The first post office was established in 1929 with Wallace Mead as postmaster.

Like many small eastern Montana towns, it was once a larger community. At one time the community had a hotel, store, cafe, drugstore and lumberyard. Before the coming of the Great Northern Railroad branch line to the area, Loring was called Lorraine and was located about ten miles to the northwest of the present site. The railroad position necessitated the move.

Area attractions include the Hewitt Lake National Wildlife Refuge and to Nelson Reservoir, one of the northeast Montana's popular water recreation and fishing areas.

Loring is located in the northeastern are of Montana. It is situated south of the Canadian Port of Morgan Entry on Highway 242.
