Goldstone Montana 1925-1955 sign

Goldstone was a town in northern Hill County,
Montana.  This sign is a memorial to the once
thriving community.

According to "Hill County" by Emily Ann Mayer and the
Clack Museum, Goldstone received its name from the
first postmaster, Frank Novak, who picked up a stone
that looked like gold.

As shown in the last photograph, the Sweet Grass Hills
sit to the west of of the former town site.  The eastern
peaks of the hills rise to an elevation of over 6900 feet.
The people of Goldstone had a nice view.

    1. Just a sign and a view. Comrey is only about 17 miles to the northwest.

    1. I love these remote areas. There aren't many fences out there so it felt very open and free.
