Glacier County, Montana


        Glacier County was established in April 1919
    and Cut Bank is the county seat. It occupies a
    portion of north central Montana. The Canadian
    border defines its northern boundary, and the
    crest of the main range of the Rocky Mountains
    is its western boundary. Nearly one-half of
    Glacier National Park lies within the county's
    boundaries as the western border of Glacier
    County runs down the center of the park. The
    rugged mountains in the west give way to
    sloping plains in the eastern portion of the
    county. The Blackfeet Indian Reservation
    occupies all but the extreme eastern edge of
    the rest of the county. The east-west length
    of Glacier County is traversed by the Milk
    River, Cut Bank Creek and the Two Medicine
    River.
