Names... Places
GLENDIVE— Gy Davis, Dawson County Review
Glendive, city of 5,000 and county seat of Dawson county,
located on the Lewis and Clark trail, received its name from
Glendive creek, which was named by the Irish play-boy. Sir
George Gore, who passed through the area guided by Jim Bridger
in 1854.
The first settlement, Camp Canby, was a military post
established in 1873 as a supply depot for an exploring expidition
sent out by the government from the Missouri river in the in
terest of the Northern Pacific railroad. On July 4, 1881. that
company laid the rails into town.
A division point and the home of the huge N. P. hospital,
Glendive is one of the most thriving towns in the State. Three
miles to the south the Bad Lands state park has scenic vistas
as beautiful and striking as any in the Treasure State.
BIG TIMBER— Ra -V and Lamont Beck, Big Timber Pioneer
Big Timber, Sweet Grass county seat, is a town of 1,600
population in the heart of a great cattle and sheep country.
Situated in a "V" formed by the Yellowstone and Boulder
Rivers, it is widely known as "the town with good fishing at
both ends of Main street."
Its name is derived from Big Timber creek where Captain
Clark in 1806 stopped on his historic trip down the Yellow
stone and noted the large cottonwoods in the vicinity.
Situated in the valley between the Crazy and Absaroka
mountains, Big Timber, with its abundant trees and beautifully
kept lawns, is a good example of what can be accomplished in
cattle and sheep country with perservance and an ample water
supply.
