DescriptionThe second oldest city in Montana, Deer Lodge is on the Clark Fork River midway between Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. The city was established in 1862 as the result of a nearby gold discovery. With fresh food and a blacksmith as drawing cards, Deer Lodge was a welcome stop for the many settlers and miners who passed through the area.
