White Sulphur Springs, Montana, is a town that saw a growth spurt prior to the Great Recession of 2008. As most people know, Montana prior to the recession saw a flood of out-state money pour into the state - leading to countless real estate developments. White Sulphur Springs, due to its location, benefited somewhat from this phenomenon - unlike many of its neighbor towns to the east that sit further out in the prairie.

I suspect the reason White Sulphur Springs attracted this building activity is due to its splendid location in the Smith River Valley. The town is surrounded by mountains. The Castle Mountains rise to the east of town. The Big Belt Mountains are found to the west, while the Little Belt Mountains are to the north of town. Additionally, Helena is also located relatively close, being about a 1.5 hour drive away.

Indeed, White Sulphur Springs is located perfectly for people who enjoy outdoor activities. All the nearby mountains provide excellent hunting for elk and deer. Showdown Ski Area is just a half hour away and provides decent downhill skiing. The area also has excellent snowmobile trails and cross-country ski trails. And, for the angler, the legendary Smith River begins just down the road, providing for some superb trout fishing.

Although White Sulphur Springs is a small town, having a population of just about 1000 people, the town seems larger. Due to the many people who pass through town on US 12 and US 89, being the county seat of Meagher County, and basically being the only town for a long ways around, White Sulphur Springs has a fairly large downtown area with plenty of services for passing motorists.
