Pablo, Montana

Pablo was once a booming town until the early 1920's when it was nearly destroyed by fire. Pablo continues to grow and to be an essential part of the valley, however. Pablo is the headquarters for the Flathead Indian Reservation and lies at the base of the Mission Mountains south of Flathead Lake. Government offices of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes moved to Pablo in the late 1970's because of its central location on the Flathead Reservation. The Salish-Kootenai College was established in 1977. It has a library that holds an extensive collection of history books about the Native American Tribes.
