Hamilton is the quintessential small American town in Montana with its picturesque scenery of lush farms, orchards, and active ranches spread all over its valley. The cultural center and the county seat of Bitterroot Valley was originally created as a planned community by Marcus Daly, Montana’s Copper King. Aside from the Daly Mansion, there are historic structures, novelty shops, and highly acclaimed restaurants that attract tourists to this culture-rich laid-back city. The Ravalli County Museum built in the 1900s is among the finest small town museums and in the National Register’s list of Historic Buildings. It’s also known for clean living with lots of fresh air, clean water, and open spaces with various options for outdoor recreation with its numerous streams and mountains.
