In 2015, Sweetgrass Development (Sweetgrass) was awarded a $400,000 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Assessment Grant to complete environmental assessments and cleanup planning on properties contaminated with petroleum and hazardous substances, including asbestos and lead-based paint. This award allows Sweetgrass to assist landowners (public and private) faced with environmental issues that are preventing redevelopment or sale of their properties. Properties located in Glacier, Cascade, Pondera, Teton and Toole counties, as well as the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, are potentially eligible to participate in the program.

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.
