Greenough is a small town some thirty-five miles east of Missoula on Highway 200. The town was named after Paul Greenough, son of an affluent business man in Missoula. Paul bought four homesteads and created the Sunset Valley Ranch around 1915. Later in 1917 a one-room school was added to the area. Soon a post office was opened near the school. The postmaster thought it was the only thing to do but to name the post office Greenough after Paul Greenough. As time went on, the ranch and the surrounding area became known as Greenough.
Today this area is rich in beauty and recreation. Experience luxury and unspoiled wilderness at The Resort At Paws Up. Enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking and winter recreation.
