Central Montana bridges the gap between mountains and rolling prairies with orb-stretching big sky in-between.

The Choteau Acantha weekly newspaper was originally established in 1893 in Dupuyer, Mont., a small rural community some 30-plus miles north of Choteau. The newspaper was established during the year Teton County was carved out of the much larger Chouteau County region. Three communities, Choteau, Bynum and Dupuyer, vied for the honor of hosting the county seat, and the Acantha's original publishers were convinced Dupuyer should be the county seat. They editorialized in favor of their community to no avail. By popular election, Choteau was the overwhelming choice. Just a few years later, the Dupuyer Acantha moved to Choteau and became the Choteau Acantha. The newspaper has now been published continuously for the past 115 years.
There's a lot more to Choteau than the endless views and wide-open skies that give this Montana town its name. A traditional Western flair, complete with real cowboys that blend easily with luxury and comfort in all aspects of life.
