The Town of Alberton is located along US Interstate 90 and the Clark Fork River, just 30 miles west of western Montana's
largest city Missoula.
Considered the "Gateway" to the nearby Alberton Gorge
, a scenic whitewater way favored by rafters, kayakers,
and avid anglers, Alberton provides key business amenities
, including gas and groceries, a historic bookstore and railroad museum,
fine dining restaurant, bars and casinos and so much more. Plus, we have good people to help where needed.
is also home to the annual Alberton Railroad Day Montana Celebration
. Held all day every third Saturday in July, usually culminating
with a concert in the park, the event honors the town's heritage and Can-Do Railroading Spirit with contests,
games, food and crafts, live music, PLUS more.
Some 400 citizens live in the incorporated town of Alberton. We have a
K-12 School System
, and a Town Council
that governs as needed. We have an active community with room to grow
And the folks who stop to visit -- if only for a few minutes to relax between our towering mountains, maybe along the river, or in
the park -- well, they find our A-town offers a nice break from interstate travel. And they're welcome !
