Just over the brow of this hill, nestled against the banks of the Missouri, is Fort Benton. It was the head of steamboat navigation on the Missouri, the world's innermost port. Below this point is a shelf in the river that prevented further passage. Along Front Street is a mile-and-a-half levee. From 1860 until the railroad arrived in 1887, most of the freight for the northwesters U.S. and Canada was unloaded on the levee. Come down the hill and walk along the Missouri, where those who came off the decks of steamboats began their lives in Montana.
