Eureka is Montana's quintessential Rocky Mountain town. Situated in the heart of the Tobacco Mountain Range along the Tobacco River, just 5 minutes south of the Canadian border and surrounded by dozens of lakes and thousands of acres of State and Forest Service lands, Eureka is a great place to go to "get away from it all" and a fantastic place for outdoor enthusiasts and sportsmen.
Eureka is recognised for having the mildest climate of any town in Montana, a repputation that has garnered the reputation of being the "Banana Belt" of Montana. Summer temperatures range in mid-eighties, with the month of June being the rainiest month, and most of the snowfalls in the are aduring the months of January or February. The lack of light pollution in the area allows for spectacular star-gazing, and on some clear nights you can see the magnificent Aurora Borealis, more commonly referred to as the Northern Lights.
Eureka is a community that embraces and celebrates it's historical past. Located in the center of town, the Tobacco Valley Historical Village is a collection of wonderfully maintained turn-of-the-century buildings that have been restored to their original beauty and provide a glimpse into Eureka's early days. Eureka celebrates many community festivals throughout the year including Rendezvous Days a celebration of the area's history, the Amish Auction, The Rodeo, The Bull Thing, Lincoln County Fair, the Quilt Show and SalmonFest.
Eureka is ideal for people who are looking for a small-town community with tons of recreational possibilities, warm friendly neighbors, and close proximity to both Canada and the shopping and commercial attractions of Whitefish and Kalispell, a quick 45-minute drive away.
