Property description

wood stove, gas heat, Directv, Blu-Ray DVD, Wi-Fi, firepit, gas grill, snowshoes, games, guitars, video games, hammock, deck with views, Neihart Mercantile (across street), Bob's Bar (across street), Lewis & Clark National Forest, and much more.

Neihart is located on Highway 89, a scenic highway connecting Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park, known as the Kings Hill Scenic Byway.

Neihart was named for James L. Neihart, one of a group of prospectors who first discovered minerals in this part of the mountains. The discovery of silver-lead ore came in 1881 and proved to be one of the richest in the Little Belts. The igneous rock in which the ore is found is called pinto diorite because of its red and green spotted appearance. Sapphire mining proved profitable here, and it is estimated that more than $3 million worth of sapphires ranging in color from pale to royal blue were taken from these mines.

A town meeting was held in 1882 and the chairman, sitting on a rock, suggested the name of Farragut for the town. No one seconded the motion, but the next suggestion of Neihart was made and accepted. Main Street was laid out to be eighty feet wide and all cross streets sixty feet.(from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)

This historic mining town is right in the heart of the Little Belt Mountains. Try out the local creeks for some excellent trout fishing, and take the 10-mile drive north of nearby Monarch to Sluice Boxes State Park where hiking, biking, hunting and wildlife viewing are popular. Neihart also boasts excellent creek fishing and recreation opportunities. Be sure to visit Memorial Falls and take the nature trail which is handicapped accessible.

For winter recreation, snowmobiling, cross-country and downhill skiing visit the Showdown Ski Area, nestled high in the Little Belt Mountains located 25 miles north of White Sulphur Springs near Neihart. There is 1,400 vertical feet of forest-lined trails, open slopes and glades for skiers of every ability.
