Rosebud County, Montana


        Rosebud County was established in February
    1901 and is located in the southeastern corner of
    Montana. The Yellowstone River runs through the

    rangeland, both to the north and south of the River.

    occupied by a portion of the Custer National
    Forest. The Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation
    also occupies a portion of the southern tip of
    Rosebud County.
