Liberty County, Montana


        Liberty County is one of the smallest counties
    in the state. It lies in north central Montana
    with its northern boundary stretching to the
    Canadian border. The land is mostly flat
    with the exception of low elevation hills that
    lie in the northwestern section of the county.
    The Marias River traverses the county from
    west to east, flowing out of Lake Elwell at
    the Tiber Dam in southern Liberty County
    and eventually running into the Missouri River
    in central Montana.
