Abandoned Farm House in the Bears Paw Mountains

Montana is full of abandoned farm houses in the central and eastern part of the state. The Hi-Line area, in particular, has quite a few of these old homestead. Now, it does need to remembered, while these old farm homes and farm buildings have been abandoned - the land itself is still in production. As previous farm families moved out of these now abandoned farm homes, the land has generally been bought out by other nearby farmers and ranchers. The result is that existing farms and ranches get larger and larger, with fewer and fewer people working the land. This is the main reason why the Hi-Line region of Montana has experienced a loss of population - agricultural condolidation.
