Peerless was originally a development of the Great Northern Railroad. It appears that Peerless once went by the name of Tande or Battleson, but because of the popularity of a local beer the name was changed to Peerless.
In Peerless, stop at Dutch Henry's Bar. The place is a namesake of an outlaw who roamed these parts in the late 1800s. A display of photos on the walls tells quite a bit about the history of the surrounding area. The original town, settled in 1914, was a few miles away. Like many other places in northeast Montana, the laying of the railroad bed required the town to be moved to the railroad.
Peerless is located in northeastern area of Montana, between Scobey and Opheim on Highway 248.
