Across the street stood the first two stores of the T.C. Power Company, the third became the Pioneer Lodge. T.C. Power stepped off the Yorktown about this spot on June 14, 1867 with a tiny stock of merchandise bought "on jawbone," but with plans as flexible as the wild frontier. John became the "& Bro." in 1869. When the Blackfoot went north, Power posts followed to tap the lucrative robe trade. Their big freight outfits supplied white settlers across the region.
In 1875 Power bought the Benton as the flag ship of the upper Missouri's greatest steamboat line. The Block P between her stacks, and on a dozen other boats, became as well-known to Montanans as the insignias of the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez on the Mississippi. T.C. Power parlayed his start in Fort Benton into wealth, a seat in the U.S. Senate and a noteworthy place in regional history.
