Ravalli County was created by the Montana Legislature on March 3, 1893 and is located in beautiful Western Montana. The county of Ravalli is also known as the Bitterroot Valley, spanning from the Missoula County line to the Idaho border and covering nearly 2400 square miles. It is home to just slightly over 40,000 people.
At one time the area was made up mostly of large ranches and farms. Agrigulture and logging were the industries that kept the valley going. Both industries are all but non-existent today so employment is a challenge for many. There are two labs that hire a good number of people as well as the Marcus Daly Hospital and the National Forest Service. Besides these four employers, the majority of people are employed by small businesses hirng up to a couple of dozen people. Tourism creates jobs for many. Some people commute to Missoula where there is a great deal more commerce and the University of Montana keeps things moving at a lively pace.
Homes for sale in Ravalli County often have expansive views of the wonderful natural surroundings that create its borders. Neighbors can live near or far but nearly anywhere in the valley you have to beware of that deer that may wander right up to your deck or maybe the moose who will take a dip in your pond. You will want to make sure you have your garbage in closed containers or you might have a late night visitor stopping by for something to eat.
