Power is located in north central Montana about 25 miles north of Great Falls. We have a population of approximately 150-175 people in town. It is mainly an agricultural area, however there are a number of businesses and churches within the local area. It is also an easy commute along Interstate 15 to Great Falls for work and shopping. We have a K-12 school which has approximately 125-150 students. The small town atmosphere and low student-teacher ratio in school make it a great place to raise a family.
Where did we get our name?
The town is named after Thomas Charles Power. He was born in Dubuque, Iowa on May 22,1839. In 1867, he came up the Missouri River and eventually started transportation and mercantile businesses in Fort Benton dealing in trade and freight across the northern plains. He was also chosen as one of Montana's first U.S. Senators. T.C. Power died in Helena on March 16, 1923.
