HISTORY

When the Clark Canyon Dam was in completed in 1964, the Clark Canyon Reservoir inundated the former Armstead townsite. This townsite was near the site of Camp Fortunate where the Lewis & Clark Expedition met the Shoshone Indians and where Sacajawea recognized her brother.

Both the Union Pacific Train that ran from Salt Lake City to Butte and the Gilmore and Pittsburgh Railroad had depots there.  One of those depots was transferred to the Medicine Lodge Ranch and is currently used as a horse barn. (See photo below).
