Joplin Montana

Elevation: 3,287 Population: 242 County: Liberty

Joplin is a Hi-Line train station where hopeful homesteaders arrived to settle on "free land". The post office opened in 1910 as they arrived, most from Missouri, Minnesota or North Dakota. This part of Montana, formerly a battleground of Piegan, Blood, and Gros Ventre Indians, became a land where homesteaders battled the elements and grasshoppers.
