More about this newspaper

The town of Big Timber in south central Montana was settled when the Northern Pacific Railroad arrived in 1882. By 1892, Big Timber was one of the world's largest exporters of wool, shipping out as much as two million pounds a year. In 1893, Big Timber had a population of 500. The Big Timber Pioneer started in 1889 and is still in print. It has followed the community through its colorful history, including encounters with Indians, the arrival of Chinese and Norwegian immigrants, the fire of March 1908, the decline of the wool industry, the rise of cattle and cowboys, and more.
