The Chamber is truly the heart of Central Montana; it serves as the area's Visitor Information Center while providing a diverse array of services to the public. Many community events and activities are either hosted, organized, or coordinated by the Lewistown Chamber of Commerce. The famous Charlie Russell Chew Choo is operated by the Chamber and their office handles all inquiries, reservations, and ticketing for the popular dinner train. Executive Director Connie Fry and her assistant are available to answer your questions and provide information about places to see, things to do and when to do them. The Chamber's office is located in the southwest portion of the Central Montana Museum building and is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM to noon and 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Historical Homesteads Auto Tour
During 2013, the Bureau of Land Management's Lewistown Field Office created a self-guided auto tour brochure and map of homesteads and small communities in the Missouri Breaks of northeastern Fergus County. The brochure contains photos and brief histories about the 12 sites. The tour begins 59 miles northeast of Lewistown at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Sand Creek Station just off U.S. Highway 191 North. A vehicle with high clearance is recommended since the tour route weaves through 60 miles of the Breaks country. Since most of the route is on undeveloped (dirt), two-track roads that turn to gumbo when wet, plan to take the tour on a nice, dry day. Please do not attempt to drive the tour route if the ground surface is wet or if moisture is predicted durng the day. Copies of the brochure and map are available at the Bureau of Land Management Office in Lewistown, the Central Montana Museum or the Lewistown Chamber of Commerce. You may also download a copy of the brochure/map from the BLM's website located at www.blm.gov/mt by clicking on "LEWISTOWN" on the map and then "Missouri Breaks Historical Homesteads Auto Tour" on the lower right of the page.
