Oro y Plata, the Montana state motto speaks volumes. It was the independent frontier spirit, that brought the first settlers to Montana in the quest for Gold and Silver, and a new life under big clear skies. Those who have settled in Montana for the last five generations since then have carved out a life in a rugged, diverse and sometimes unforgiving landscape. From the Rocky Mountains of the west to the rolling ranch, and prairie lands of the the east, Montana is 147,000 square miles of challenges and opportunities.
Although living and doing business in Montana is not for the faint of heart, there is a unique opportunity here to be a part of something special. Our towns and communities are positioned for growth, and ready for investment. Montana leads the nation in business creation, not just in our cities, but also in our rural towns, and smaller communities. Montana is building it's future not only on economics, but also on it's unique lifestyle, it's connection to the outdoors, and it's small town feel. It's not called a small town with very long streets without reason. The deep connection between communities statewide is real, and the people are genuine. Innovation and opportunity aren't just words, in Montana they're reality. The businesses and strong communities throughout the state are proving this on a daily basis. The real challenge once you have decided on moving yourself, or your business to Montana, is choosing from so many great communities ready to meet your needs.
For myself, my family, and my business, the choice was West Yellowstone, Montana. What would your choice be?
