Belgrade Mercantile early 1900s - Belgrade MT Real Estate

In 1882 Thomas B. Quaw, an entrepreneur, located real estate about ten miles west of Bozeman, MT along the newly surveyed Northern Pacific Railway right-of -way. He found this area pleasing, and in July 1881, he filed with the Gallatin County Courthouse application for Belgrade to become a town. According to Quaw, the Belgrade, Montana real estate incorporating the townsite “was a blind railroad siding nine and seven tenths miles west of Bozeman.” As an expression of gratitude to Serbian investors who helped finance part of the Northern Pacific Railroad project, the town was named after Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.


From the early 1900’s through the 1930’s, Belgrade, Montana grew, adding professional and agricultural businesses, and it took on the look of an established community. As the Great Depression took hold of the nation, speculation in Belgrade, MT fell, and Belgrade became a quiet farming community, the land tilled and grazed, until the post World War II years.


After the Great War, Belgrade, Montana regained its prosperity. Many businesses expanded and even relocated to larger facilities; new businesses sprang up on the once quiet, rural real estate. A community zealous about education, Belgrade, MT maintained its excellent school system, in large part due to proactive community members. During this period local families ran most of the town’s businesses. Belgrade, Montana citizens have always had a strong commitment to the sense of community.
