History

The Lord Ranch is rich in history. The history behind this ranch runs deep of stories told and some never spoken of. In Charlie Russell’s book, Trails Plowed Under – Stories of the Old West, he wrote about his time on the Lord Ranch, riding the range and eventually came to a stop at Cannonball Coulee with his buddy Charlie Brewster. Buffalo jumps overlook the riverfront acres, teepee rings are authentic and still seen from the benches on the south range, Lewis and Clark traveled this very property. It is rumored that while Lewis and Clark were traveling through, they drank the water from a spring near the intersection of the Smith and Missouri rivers and got sick with dysentery. They shot a deer across the river and their trusty dog drug it back for them to eat. This ranch has been in the family since 1962 and is what the west was made of, filled with fascinating heritage of the west.

• Location •

» Great Falls is only 15 miles away, with the Great Falls International Airport at the interstates’ entrance into town. The city of Great Falls is famous for the Great Falls of the Missouri River. It is named after the falls as it is truly the city's most iconic landmark due to its beautiful and free-flowing cascades. Built as a railroad hub, Great Falls initially relied heavily on ore smelting in its early years. Black Eagle Dam, opened in 1890, was the first hydroelectric dam built in Montana and the first built on the Missouri River. The energy industry helped give the city of Great Falls the nickname "The Electric City“. Great Falls is a community with grand traditions, rich history and superb recreational and cultural amenities for the entire family. When you visit, take a moment and remember to reflect on the fact that you're walking in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark, Charlie Russell, the Blackfeet Indians, and the buffalo.

» Ulm is the closest town to the Lord Ranch at just 5 miles away. Ulm is a quaint little town located right on the Missouri River. Ulm, southwest of Great Falls, off of I-15, is a small community that is host to what is believed to be one of the largest buffalo kill sites in the United States. First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park (formerly known as Ulm Pishkun)includes interpretive trails and a visitor center. Ulm also provides fishing and floating access to the Missouri and Smith Rivers and is near the Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge which supports a variety of water birds with both nesting and migration habitat.

» Helena is 79 miles from Ulm. One and a half centuries ago, Helena became the "Queen City of the Rockies" with the boom brought on by the 1864 gold strike. Helena grew along Last Chance Gulch and in 1875 became the Montana territorial capital. Today the state capital’s grand architecture, numerous museums and historic sites offer a real glimpse into the rich and deep history of the city. Helena also boasts a vibrant cultural center with a busy event calendar, eclectic shopping, art galleries, terrific local bands, great restaurants, local microbreweries, and an epic trail system and Great Divide Ski Hill.
