Welcome to Hogeland, Montana

Hogeland is twelve miles from Canada. It was named for A. H. Hogeland, who was for many years chief engineer for the Great Northern Railroad. The boom for this homesteading area came with the railroad in 1928. Buildings sprang up, and at one time, Hogeland consisted of a hotel, three restaurants, two general stores, two pool halls, two garages, a filling station, a butcher shop, three elevators, a lumberyard, a blacksmith shop, confectionary, hardware store, implement dealer, a weekly newspaper, a church, school, and a dairy. By 1960 the population had dwindled to 80.(from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)
