Local AreaTravel back in time 135 years ago when Mabry Cattle Corporation settled and ranched in the area today known as Circle, MT. To identify their cows, they used a brand in the shape of a circle to mark them. This identification mark inspired Peter Rorvik to name the post office "Circle" in 1905. Alongside the post office, a store was also started in the old ranch house paving the way for the farming and ranching community that later won the draw for the county seat of McCone County. Circle is located along the Big Sky Back Country Byway where the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers are linked. The friendly community offers a Town County Airport and the McCone County Museum.
