Fort Benton is proudly Montana's oldest continuously inhabited settlement. It owes a lot to the Missouri River, on which the town is located, having been a hot spot for transportation of goods to places as far away as Idaho, Washington and Alberta, Canada.
From a tourist's viewpoint, it was pure delight strolling the main street of Fort Benton, along side the river. The town has set up fact boards with information and pictures that bring to life both the good and bad, the lawful and the awful, of the town in its hey days in the mid- to late-1800s.
