North Valley County Visitor Information House

Opheim, Montana - Pen and Ink - 2008

2008 - This ‘Little House’- stocked with a variety of site-seeing maps, brochures and more is located within Valley County, Montana - 10 miles south of the Canadian border and 120 miles west of North Dakota. Designed by part-time resident Bill Hosko, both he a small group of civic minded individuals subsequently constructed the North Valley County Visitor Information House. Opheim, est. 1915, population 100, occupies the highest geographic location in the region. An outpost in the area, with ideal summers and tough winters, Opheim was the last name of an early European American settler. Appropriately enough, in Norwegian this name means farmstead on higher ground! The area was one of the last homesteaded in America. Wheat farming is king here, with ranching not far behind. Just west of this well-kept little town the bench land it rests upon gives way, opening a grand and vast view of one of North America’s best grasslands landscapes.
