Toole County, Montana


        Toole County is located along the Montana/
    Canadian border in north central Montana. The
    county is largely made up of rolling prairie and
    bench lands, except for the Sweet Grass Hills
    in the northeastern quarter. The Marias River
    traverses the southern tip of the county where
    it empties into Lake Elwell in the southern
    quarter. Oil fields, located near Sunburst
    and Kevin, which were quite productive in the
    1920s and 30s, are still in operation today.
