Located in Park County, Montana, the town of Clyde Park was founded in the 1870s by a group of Texas cattlemen who found the area valuable for grazing their herds. First known as Sunnyside, a post office was established there in 1887. That same year, a post office called Clyde Park was established at the nearby Harvey and Tregloan Ranch, where John Harvey owned a Clydesdale horse that he had imported from England. In 1901, the Clyde Park post office was merged with Sunnyside, and the combined town took on the name of Clyde Park. In 1909, the Northern Pacific Railway established a branch line to Clyde Park, and the town was incorporated in 1912, at which time it had a bank, newspaper, creamery, and an elevator. A fire burned much of the town in 1919. Today, the town is home to the G Bar M Ranch, a 3,200-acre dude ranch that has been in operation since 1934, although the ranch itself dates back to 1900. Clyde Park is in the Shields River Valley, and is accessed primarily through US Highway 89. Wilsall is north of Clyde Park, and Chadborn and Grannis are to the south.
