The city of Cut Bank was appropriately named for the creek running on the outskirts of town. The Blackfeet Indians described the stream as “the river that cuts into the white clay bank.” The city itself actually began back in the 1890’s with the onset of the railroad and the building of a bridge across Cut Bank Creek. At this time the city was located on the west side of Cut Bank Creek. Several years later it was determined Cut Bank was located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, so the whole town was relocated to the east side of the creek. With the town in its new and now permanent home, residents started moving in and the flow of visitors continued.
