Lewis & Clark County, Montana


        The area now known as Lewis & Clark
    County, located in west central Montana, attracted
    its first settlers with its rich placer gold deposits.
    The Sun River comprises the northern boundary
    of the county, and a chain of bodies of water,
    including a portion of the Missouri River, Holter
    Lake, Lake Helena, Hauser Lake, and part of
    Canyon Ferry Lake traverse the eastern section
    of the county from north to south. Nearly half
    the county is blanketed by portions of the
    Helena and Flathead National Forests. The
    Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains
    runs down the center of Lewis and Clark County.
