Malta Montana Metis Scrip Claims

After James Hill and his partners built the St Paul, Minneapolis, and Manitoba railway (which in 1890 became the Great Northern Railway) across Montana's "High Line" in 1887, Malta evolved from rail siding number 54. It is on the rail line west of Glasgow Montana and east of Havre Montana. All of these towns are in close proximity to the Milk River, a long time hunting location for Metis. What came to be Saco, Montana to the east and Dodson, Montana to the west grew from other nearby sidings. A post office was established in Malta in 1890.
