Volborg

Volborg

Volborg is a country store and post office on Pumpkin Creek, a large stream which attracted many stockmen to its banks, where they noted the vast, unfenced and unclaimed ranges on both sides and often decided to settle. But ranches were miles apart and it was a lonely life, particularly for women. Theodore Roosevelt, who came by occasionally from his northern ranch, once remarked, "The frontier is hard on women and horses." Occasionally families and cowboys got together for a dance. The men outnumbered women ten to one and the children slept on quilts in the corner. Music often lured cowboys to travel many miles. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)
