Philipsburg is a National Historic District with unique architecture and historic renovations from its wild mountain mining camp days of the late 1880's. Georgetown Lake, 12 miles to the southeast, is a beautiful year-round recreation spot situated beside the Anaconda - Pintler Scenic Wilderness. Wildlife viewing, ghost towns, the Ghost Town Hall of Fame, blue-ribbon fishing, sapphire hunting, and year-round water sports are awaiting your adventuresome spirit
Philipsburg sits at the center of the Pintler Scenic Route, a 63-mile loop that enters and exits I-90 at exit #154 to the north and exit #208 to the southeast. The scenic beauty is the original Yellowstone Trail that travelers enjoy between Glacier and Yellowstone Parks.
I found enough [sapphires] that I had a pair of earrings made as well as 3 tie takcs and 5 loose stones...I just wanted to tell you just how happy I was to see the outcome of those stones...they are so beautiful...and everyone was happy with their gift tooConnie, California
