Noxon is on the Clark Fork River along Montana Highway 200. Established as a Northern Pacific Railroad station in 1883, Noxon is named for an early prospector in the area. It thrived for many years as a railroad and logging town. In 1960 Washington Water Power completed the construction of the Noxon Rapids Dam, which is capable of generating 400,000kw of electrical power.(Copyright 2009, Montana Historical Society: Montana Place Names from Alzada to Zortman, Montana Historical Society Research Center Staff)
