Located between Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park in the lower southwestern corner of Montana, Anaconda is in a spectacular region of the state. Rich in mining history, Anaconda was founded when the Anaconda Copper Mining Company in Butte, MT required a smelter for the refining its copper ore and was chosen as the site for this because of its ample supply of water and nearby limestone deposits.
In 1980, the smelter shut down its smelter operation, and the Anaconda Mining Company has slowly shifted its spotlight to reflect the mineral treasures, such a sapphires, agates, crystals, garnets and gold that are sprinkled throughout this region. Also contributing to the economic success of Anaconda is the growing recreation opportunities the abound here. Biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, golfing and horseback riding are all activities enjoyed in this diverse region.
Like the majority of Montana, Anaconda is considered to be under-populated making the area a prime opportunity for many buyers and investors looking at Anaconda Montana real estate market for its many possibilities and potentials. The area boasts low crime rates and affordable cost of living. In general, the housing market is predicted to become more robust as soon as economic rehabilitations are completed.
