Big Horn County, Montana


        Big Horn County was established in January
    1913 and occupies land along the Montana/
    Wyoming border in south central Montana. The
    Crow Indian Reservation is almost entirely
    contained within the county's boundaries, as
    well as half of the Northern Cheyenne Indian
    Reservation. Big Horn Lake makes up a section
    of the western border of the county, and the
    Big Horn River flows from the north end of the
    lake at the Yellowtail River just outside the
    county's northern boundary. The Rosebud
    Mountain range occupies a portion of the
    eastern half of the county, while the Big Horn
    Mountains lie in the southwestern corner.
