When you think of places to live in Montana, several come to mind. Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Great Falls, Missoula, and Kalispell are a few. Of course, there are several smaller towns as well.

However, none of those are as popular in name as this tiny Montana town.

Deep in the Bitterroot Valley lies the little town of Riverside, Montana. To be honest, there's not much happening in Riverside and there hasn't been for decades. The town once had a post office, but that closed back in 1895. There used to be a railroad station, but that's gone now as well.

So what exactly is in Riverside?  Well, there's an RV Park and that's about it.

However, what gives Riverside its unique distinction is the name of the town itself. You see, there are several towns in Montana that share their name with other towns across the country, but none are more popular than Riverside.
