Cascade County, Montana


        Cascade County was established in December
    1887 and lies in central Montana. The county
    is criss-crossed by numerous rivers and
    streams. The Missouri River enters along the
    western border and flows northeasterly through
    the county, while the Smith River enters along
    the northwestern border and joins the Missouri
    near Great Falls. The terrain is characterized
    by rolling plains and river valley, except for
    the extreme southeastern corner that is
    mountainous and timbered. A section of the
    Lewis and Clark National Forest is nestled
    there, and the Little Belt Mountains lie along
    the southern border. Great Falls is the county seat.
