This is Helena, Montana, our capital. There are around 30,000 people living here, which still makes it one of the biggest towns in Montana. Seriously, how many people really think of a town of 30,000 as a city?
Hopefully, this puts things into perspective and explains why our town of 800 isn’t especially small in Montana. Put in a different way, there is a person for every 7 square miles of Montana. That puts Montana’s population density at 48th in the US.
