The Bitterroot Valley

The Bitterroot Valley was voted by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful drives in the country. A good place to grow up.

Stevensville was the first European American settlement in the "Territory of Montana". Originally established as "Saint Mary's Mission" and the nearby "Fort Owen" trading post during the 1840's and 1850's, the town of Stevensville grew up around the original Mission church shown in my "must see activities". The highest peak in this part of the Bitterroot Mountains is named for this Mission, and may be seen in the background behind the original Mission church I have pictured.

The City Life

A picture of downtown (uptown?) Stevensville. I think downtown, midtown and uptown are all the same area in this town.
