Ennis Montana Real Estate For Sale

Ennis Montana Life

Ennis Montana Real Estate Below

The Tobacco Root Mountains to the northwest, the Madison Range to the east, and the Snowcrest and Gravelly Mountain Ranges to the south, all these ranges surround Ennis, Montana.

The Flathead, Bannock, and Shoshone Native American tribes called the Ennis Valley, “The Land of the Shining Mountains,” an apt description of this region of Southwest Montana, known for excellent hunting and fishing.

In 1863, while hiding from the Crow Indians, Bill Fairweather and party, on their way to Yellowstone Country, discovered gold in a gulch lined with Alder trees, which they aptly named Alder Creek.

At this time, this south-west Montana region was Idaho Territory and the discovery of gold precipitated a new gold rush, which has been recorded as the largest placer gold strike in world history, producing $10 million in its first year.

This town that Cowboy Magazine ranked a top 20 western town, was named for freighter, William Ennis.

Ennis showed up in Alder, Montana during the 1863 gold rush. Alder was 22 miles from where Ennis homesteaded along the Madison River…present day Ennis.

Ennis, Montana is famous for hunting, fishing, hiking and is west of Big Sky, Montana in the Madison River Valley.

Ennis Lake is formed by a dam in the Madison River just above Bear Trap Canyon, creating the Upper Madison River and the Lower Madison River. Big Sky, Montana is directly east.

Bill Ennis came into the area by crossing the tobacco Root Mountains, bringing oxen, mules, and horses. After arriving, he cut the area’s lush grass, hawking his hay in Virginia City for about $125/ton, the same price a ton of hay costs today!

Nearby Virginia City, Montana is only 12 miles west of Ennis, MT and was established in 1863. Virginia City, MT is the United States’ only complete and original mining town from that era.

Next door is Nevada City, Montana, which remains to this day a busy mining town in much the same way it has been for over 100 years. In 1864, this part of Idaho’s territory, along with Ennis and Virginia City, became Montana Territory.

Ennis, MT Looks And Feels Like A True Western Town

This small, idyllic western town is located in Montana’s Madison Valley, along the world famous Madison River, one of Montana’s finest trout fishing streams. The US government owns three million acres in the Beaverhead National Forest, near Ennis, Montana.
