In the early 1800’s Captain Meriwether Lewis led a small group of men up the north fork of the Marias River, now known as Cut Bank Creek. Since that time visitors have continued to enjoy traveling to the Cut Bank area. With the majestic Rocky Mountains on one side and gently rolling hills and wheat fields on the other, it’s no wonder visitors keep returning.

The Two Medicine Fight Site located roughly 25 miles south east of Browning is the location of the only violent encounter of the Lewis and Clark Expedition which took place on July 27, 1806. Accounts of the conflict have varied over the years, but one of the main issues was that the Corps of Discovery were making peace with other American Indian tribes and providing them with guns which threatened the traditional Blackfeet domination of the region.
