Montana was originally home to several Native American tribes, including the Crow, Blackfeet, and Cheyenne. The Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through Montana in 1805 and 1806, opening the area up to European settlement.
Montana became a territory in 1864, and was admitted as the 41st state of the United States in 1889. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Montana experienced a mining boom, with gold, silver, and copper being extracted from the earth.
In the 20th century, Montana became known for its expansive wilderness areas and outdoor recreational opportunities. The state is home to several national parks, including Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Agriculture, particularly cattle ranching, remains an important part of the state’s economy.
