Richland County Montana Court House by Bryan D. Spellman

Richland County Montana Court House by 


Richland County got its name from the boosters who were trying to promote homesteading in the area. The county was formed from Dawson County in 1914, with Sidney as its seat. Historically an agricultural county, oil was discovered in 2000 and brought new wealth to the area. In the 2000 census, 9,667 people lived in the county, with 4,774 of them in Sidney.

Richland County is number 27 on Montana license plates.

Taken 10/7/2009, in Sidney, Montana using a Nikon D80 DSLR fitted with a Nikkor 16-85 wide angle/tele/zoom lens set at 20 mm. ISO 250, f /22.0, 1/250 second.

Born in Montana, raised in California, I’ve been holding a camera most of my life. I particularly love photographing the grand landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.

    I was there too, when the Glendive airport fogged in Sunday. I’m awaiting Prairie!! The old ones look so much better, don’t they?

  • You’ll have a bit of a wait for Prairie. I haven’t been in Prairie County since I was seven. I tried to get Kevin to drive from Glendive to Terry, then up to Circle and back to Sidney, but he refused. SO…. I have to plan a trip to get me to WInnett, Jordan, Circle, Terry, Broadus, Hardin, Hysham, then home. I can’t wait.

    Be sure to look at the Kempton hotel there. Maybe when the antelope are busy – that county is full of them.

    wonderful image Bryan!!

  • Thanks. I’ve been told that the courthouse yard was filled with Elms that died of disease, then the storms knocked down some of the big pines as well. Wish I’d seen the place while the trees were still living.
