DescriptionLewistown originally was a trading post on the Carroll Trail between Helena and Carroll. First called Reed's Fort, it later was renamed Lewistown after the military officer who established a fort nearby in 1876. Trading, only on a larger scale, continues to support the town, which is a market for the large cattle ranches and wheat farms of central Montana.
