Wilsall began as the terminus of a Northern Pacific spur line. The community, which is on Shields Creek, was laid out by Walker B. Jordan, who combined the nameS of his son Will and his daughter-in-law Sally, to coin the town's name. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)
Wilsall is located in the Bridger Mountain Range, approximately twenty miles northeast of Bozeman. It is in the Shields River Valley, and there's great fishing on the Shields River and hiking in the Crazies just minutes away. The community also hosts an annual Wilsall Rodeo.
