Historic Springhill Community
Springhill, just 12 miles north of Bozeman, MT, is a captivating community, with a well-preserved history. Hawks and Eagles nest here. Ross Creek meanders through the meadows. And Ross Peak provides the perfect backdrop. Nestled on a bench, with panoramic views, is Hawk’s Hill, a special home on over 13 acres. An adjoining 11+acre parcel with development rights, creek with water rights, productive grass meadows, trees and a barn are included in the offering. Every season of the year provides interest and recreation. Enjoy snowshoeing and nordic skiing in the meadow, hike the nearby trails, visit the raptor center, bird watch, or head to Bridger Bowl or Crosscut for skiing. Views of the valley, Spanish Peaks and the Tobacco Root Mountains are protected by conservation easements. Remaining development rights are limited, providing a rural oasis with a rich heritage.
Springhill Circa 1908
Springhill Community was settled in the 1860’s, thanks to the Homestead Act of 1862 and the “fertile, well-watered setting of this sheltered ravine” (At Home). Early pioneer families included the names of Decker, Gee, Gowan, Morgan, Norman, Penwell, Ross and Corbly – names well recognized on roads, trails and Ross Peak, reportedly scaled by Melvin Ross Sr. Other businesses soon followed as wood resources were also plentiful. The Malmberg Sash and Door Factory produced furniture and a sawmill was a bustling enterprise.
Ross Creek, previously known as Mill Creek, was used to power the flour mill with a giant flume constructed by Merritt, John and Oscar Penwell (At Home). Ross Creek also provided abundant water for what became the Mountain Dew Distillery, which at its height, produced 350-500 gallons of rye whiskey a day. (Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley, Phyllis Smith, pp 72-76, 302).
By the 1880s, the community boasted a church, school, two flour mills, a sawmill, a sash and door factory, a distillery, a blacksmith shop, Cramer Community Hall and cemetery. The church, school and community hall are still utilized today. In 1989, to protect themselves from development, the homeowners formed a Community Planning and Zoning District (At Home).
