Just 16 miles west of the Mineral County seat (Superior), and 80 miles west of Missoula, lies St Regis, Montana. St Regis is located on Hwy 135 (the shortcut to Glacier Nat'l Park) just off I-90 where the Clark Fork and St. Regis rivers converge. St Regis is nestled in the spectacular Rocky Mountains, which are abundant with high mountain lakes, hiking trails, ski slopes, forests, snowmobile runs, fishing, and plentiful game & wildlife, not to mention thousands of miles of clear running rivers and creeks.
St Regis was named after a Jesuit priest, Saint Regis DeBorgia. It began as a shipping point for the lumber industry, which is now minimal. Once a well-established mining and lumber town, the community is now primarily a tourist related town, offering a golf course, a large community park and a Travel Montana Visitor Information Center. St Regis also hosts the largest Flea Market in Montana every Memorial Day weekend.
In the 1850s, Congress appropriated money to open a road in the Northwest for wagons from Walla Walla, Washington to Fort Benton, Montana. Captain John Mullan was the leader of this expedition. It was mountainous, covered with huge trees, and there were no trails. It was an enormous undertaking to create the road through this rugged terrain. Once Captain Mullan established the route, it provided access to prospectors, settlers, frontiersmen and adventurers. From time to time, families traveling westward settled along the passage, and the town eventually grew to the quaint community of around 315 people that it is today.
St Regis and the Mineral County area offer a wealth of winter activities, including skiing, sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, & ice skating. Summer in this area offers some of the best fly fishing in the country, as well as white water rafting, sightseeing, wildlife photography, swimming, camping, & mountain biking. St Regis provides one of the mildest climates in Montana, both summer and winter. The scenic beauty of this mountain town is unparalleled!
