Fish the Jefferson or Boulder River near Whitehall, or stop at the city park.
Whitehall was named after a large white ranch home, owned originally by E. G. Brooke. It was used as a stopping place for stages running from Helena to Virginia City. Brooke named his structure ""Old Whitehall"" after a similar structure in Whitehall, Illinois. The original station and post office is located 4 miles from where Whitehall now stands. The community began to develop after the railroad came through in 1889.
