The Whitehall Ledger - Serving Southern Jefferson County in the Great State of Montana

By Jack H. Smith
Ledger Publisher 

Destination Whitehall coming this month


Later this month, the Ledger will be publishing the annual Destination Whitehall special edition. If you’re not familiar with the publication, it has a wide variety of stories about some of the events and places that make the area a truly wonderful place not live and visit.

There is detailed information about some of the great fishing, backcountry opportunities, the Lewis and Clark Caverns, the Lewis and Clark Murals, the Brooke Barn, Frontier Days and the history of the area. It is distributed not only in Whitehall, but also throughout Southwest Montana. It gives people who may be staying the night at a hotel, or stopping by a Chamber of Commerce or a visitor center a chance to learn more about the place we all love.

Tourism plays a vital role in the local economy, especially during the summer months. The tourists come into the area and eat at our restaurants, stay at our hotels, shop at our grocery story, fuel up at our gas stations and purchase items at our smaller businesses. Every dollar helps the community, and the publication is a great introduction to a place many may not be familiar with. They often times will go explore the backcountry, do some fishing, visit somewhere like the Ringing Rocks, and will have a great time doing so. Many come back in the future because they had a great time in one of the true gems of Montana.

We would like to ask anyone who has great pictures of the local area or information about a place to visit or upcoming event to contact us. We would like to include as many great photos and information about the area as we can.

If residents have something they would like to see in the edition, please email us at

Also be sure to attend the annual meeting of the Jefferson Valley Museum this Thursday at 7 p.m.

A presentation by Arlene Weber is scheduled, and should be a fascinating look at the history of the area. Also look for a historical article written by Weber on page 12.
