Hunters should note that there is also a natural warm spring originating on the property, which is a waterfowl magnet in the Pheasants and upland birds are common to the ranch, as are whitetail deer.
Beaverhead Rock ranch is steeped in Montana history. There was even a stagecoach stop here in the late 1800s. Bannack — now a ghost town — and Virginia City were booming gold camps at the time, and the stagecoach serviced those towns. The ranch also literally lies directly in the shadow of Beaverhead Rock, which was recognized by Sacagawea during the Lewis and Clark expedition.
The general store/post office is now a three-bedroom, one-bath, 1,570-square-foot home. It is the main ranch house, and while it has historic roots, it has since been placed on a new concrete foundation. There are several other ranch buildings on the property:
- A beautiful historical barn
- A 30-foot-by-48-foot implement shed
- Other storage sheds and buildings, including the former schoolhouse
With its recreational opportunities and access to national forests and wilderness, Dillon, Montana real estate is extremely desirable.
