Lewis and Clark once camped in this area that was one of the leading fur trading regions of the country. Permanent settlers arrived with the Great Northern Railroad. In 1911 Sidney became an incorporated town and the Richland County Seat, so named for the promise of the U.S. Reclamation Service project and the booster rhetoric of the era. In the early 1900s, high national farm prices encouraged the federal government to construct the Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Project. Richland County farmers were then able to irrigate their land and produce abundant beet, oats and grain crops. The initial success of the Lower Yellowstone Irrigation project, along with the homesteading boom of the early 1910s, led to the creation of Richland County. Sidney was the largest town on the Northern Pacific's spur that ran up the Lower Yellowstone Valley. The historic grain elevators along the tracks testify to generations of agricultural products shipped from the town, although today the incessant freight traffic serving the oil fields of the nearby Williston Basin overwhelm the earlier agricultural focus.The Yellowstone is the last free flowing river in the lower 48 states. From its headwaters in Lake Yellowstone downstream 670 miles to the Missouri River in North Dakota, the Yellowstone River flows as it has for centuries, in its natural state, undammed and untamed. Clear, cool swift and challenging it offers fishermen and river runners some of the best water Montana has to offer. To fishermen, its blue-ribbon waters are known world round for an abundance of big trout. As it flows through Montana the big river goes through many changes - from steep-walled canyons where boulders churn its green waters to the eastern part of the state where the river broadens to take a lazy path through fertile farm country. There are many opportunities for recreation along the Yellowstone River. Gravel along the river from Custer to Sidney often yields Montana agates. Fishing and floating are two other favorite activities on the Yellowstone.MINERAL RIGHTSThe Sellers will convey with the property 100% of whatever mineral, oil, gas, geo-thermal, hydrocarbon and gravel rights they own, subject to reservations by previous owners.
