  • Southeast Montana

Colstrip is known as the "energy capital of Montana" and was born in 1924 when the Northern Pacific Railroad started mining coal nearby to fuel their steam locomotives. Today, Colstrip is a quiet, closely knit community with over 2,000 citizens and 22 parks. The Schoolhouse History and Art Center, the town's original schoolhouse built in 1924, now serves as the visitor center, an art gallery and also provides tours of the coal mine from May to October.
