Description
Natural resources have been the mainstay of Libby's economy since its settlement in the 1860s. Drawn by stories of gold in the north, prospectors first gathered in this region and named the town after the daughter of one of the men who discovered gold in a nearby creek. Mining, timber and tourism are the town's leading businesses.
Libby's environs contribute to the town's popularity as a recreational center. The nearby Kootenai National Forest provides extensive lands for public use, and anglers enjoy fishing in the Kootenai River and its tributaries.
