With a 2004 population of only 465 people, most people have never heard of Broadus. The town was originally considered a cowboy town until oil was discovered there. Today, Broadus is known for three things; cattle, oil and an excellent school system.
As part of its unique offerings, Broadus is the place for visitors to participate in real life cattle drives. The Powder River Wagon Train and Cattle Drive allows willing participants a horse of there own to ride and take care of while riding beside seasoned cowboys and cowgirls. Guests are certain to work up an appetite for cowboy coffee, eggs and hotcakes at the chuck wagon. We are told that nothing beats the thick steaks, baked beans and hot biscuits served up under Montana's big sky. Evening campfires are for singing, spinning yarns, and making good old Montana memories.
