By W. J. Hagen, Former
Editor, The Plentywood Herald.
Sheridan county in. the extreme northeastern section of Mon
tana, was created out of necessity. Old Valley county, of which
the territory now known as Sheridan was a part, was growing
rapidly by 1912. The growth was so rapid that the population
and territory wgs getting beyond the point where one county
seat could effectively serve a vast area. The new county was
created in March, 1913. Plentywood is the county seat.
The county has changed from an extensive cattle and sheep
raising area" to one of productive wheat and grain farming. It
boasts some of the finest dry land farming territory in the north
west.

was part of Deer Lodge county, one of the nine original counties

You Too, Can Have o New Home
Do your plans for 1948 include a new home? You don't need
a bulging pocket book to build an attractive comfortable cottage
that will please one whose budget is limited but whose good taste
is not.
A small cottage that packs a heap of livability into four or five
rooms, is difficult to plan.. There must not be a foot of waste space.
It must have the required closet space and window area, and too,
it must have looks as well. Many a professional builder can slap
a small house together which looks good but lacks other require
ments for the perfect home.
If you expect to build in '48, we will be glad to help you with
your plans. In case you may have a limited budget, there is even
reason to begin planning at once. We have many house plans
the best architects, and will be pleased to assist in your plans
more
from
for the new home whether it be a cottage or mansion.
