Montana, a state in the Northwestern United States, was the 41st to join the Union, which it did on November 8, 1889. It is one of eight Rocky Mountain States; the others are Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Around 77 mountain ranges in the western half of Montana lie within the Rockies.
The Rocky Mountains are a major mountain range that runs for about 3,000 miles from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico, in the Southwestern United States.
Montana is the fourth largest state in the U.S. However, with just over a million residents, it ranks 44th in population. Montana has many neighbors; Canada lies to the north, Wyoming to the south, Idaho to the west, and the Dakotas to the east. Montana’s economy is based on agriculture, oil and gas, coal, mining, lumber, and a fast-developing tourist industry.
Some of Montana’s major attractions are the Glacier National Park, the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, which commemorates the 1876 conflict between the U.S. and Sioux and Cheyenne Indians, the Museum of the Rockies, with its displays of dinosaur skeletons, the Big Sky Resort, renowned for skiing, and the Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park.
