Bitterroot Valley Communities

The Bitterroot Valley is cradled by the Sapphire Mountains on the east and the beautiful Bitterroot Mountains on the west (and a river runs through it).  It is comprised of several distinct communities along Highway 93 south from Florence up to Sula (the bottom of Lookout Pass). The communities are: Florence, Stevensville, Victor, Corvallis, Hamilton, Darby, Conner, Sula.

Explore this page to learn more about each of them!

Home of the Florence Falcons and the famous Rustic Hut, Florence is a small community of about 1000 residents. Located only 20 min south of Missoula, Florence offers rural living with a quick commute to town.

Stevensville Welcome Sign

Home of the Yellowjackets!

Nestled in the heart of the Bitterroot, Stevensville is a quaint and bustling little town with big history. Established by Jesuits missionaries 48 years before Montana became a state, Stevensville is the oldest permanent settlement of non-indigenous peoples.

Victor Steakhouse, and Victor Crossing (one of the best places on the Bitterroot to cast your line), this sleepy little town is named for Chief Victor of the Bitterroot Salish. 

Corvallis Welcome Sign

Home of the Blue Devils, the Western Ag-Research Center, the last commercial orchard in the state of Montana, and my personal favorite, the world-famous rodeo clown, Danger Dave ​WhitmoyerCorvallis is a quaint little village with a big heart. This area of the valley has some of them most fertile soil and is comprised of many small ranches, farms and homesteads. Conveniently located just a few minutes from downtown Hamilton, Corvallis is a beautiful place to make your home.


Home of the Hamilton Broncs and the Ravalli County Seat, Hamilton is a vibrant small city offering everything from fine dining, higher education and the arts, to rodeo, hunting, and fly blue ribbon fly fishing on the Bitterroot River.
