Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
West Glacier, Babb Reservation
It is located on Glacier National Parks southwest border. The settlement has a tiny permanent population which grows much larger during the summers. Most people are non Indian. The settlement was started in 1893 when Great Northern Railway was laid through the area. The settlement is used primarily as a stop over for tourists. The elevation is 3,169 feet above sea level which means it has warmer summers than East Glacier Park Village. About 2 miles to the north is Apgar which is like that of West Glacier, a settlement which tends to the needs of tourists. The population of West Glacier is estimated to be 426. There are 348 housing units which means about half are used by tourists. West Glacier is spread out over 514 sq. mi. Below are several links to google earth photos of West Glacier and Apgar.
