Havre is the largest town on Russell Country’s Hi-Line route. Montana State University-Northern is located here. Ranching provides a livelihood for many of Havre’s 10,500 residents. Locals have made a concerted effort to preserve cultural and historic sites, offering visitors some unusual exploration opportunities. Thinking that Bull Hook Bottoms (the name of the railroad siding) might not look so good on a map, railroad tycoon James Hill suggested that the founding fathers select a new name. The first meeting ended in a brawl. There are two stories of how the town’s name finally came about. The most likely is that one of the founding father’s families originated from Havre, France, and since many of the original homesteaders were French, they chose to honor the French city with a namesake. Another version suggests that the name came from a tussle between two gentlemen for the affections of a charming woman. When it became clear to one of the two that he was losing the fight, he gave up and said, “you can have her.” Either way, Havre stuck. It is pronounced HAVE-er.
