Sheridan, in Madison County, Montana, was named for the Civil War General Philip Sheridan. Known as the heart of the Ruby Valley, Sheridan is surrounded by seven mountain ranges, including Tobacco Root Range, Highlands Mountains, McCartney Mountain, the Pioneers, the Ruby Range, the Gavellies, and the Snowcrest Range. The Ruby River passes through the Ruby Valley, just west of Sheridan. The area was settled in the 1860s, its first post office was established in 1866, and the town was incorporated in 1893. Sheridan is accessed through Montana Highway 287, and is located northwest of Laurin and Alder and southeast of Twin Bridges. The small community of Brandon is to the east.
