Montana County, now a part of the State of Colorado, was created by the territorial legislature of Kansas on Feb. 7, 1859, with the following boundaries: "Commencing at a point on the 40th parallel of latitude, 20 miles east of the 105th meridian of longitude; running thence west to the western boundary of the Territory of Kansas; thence following the boundary of the Territory of Kansas, on the summit of the Rocky mountains, to a point 20 miles north of the 39th parallel of latitude; thence east to a point 20 miles east of the 105th meridian of longitude; thence due north to the place of beginning." By the same act J. H. Turney, William H. Prentice and A. D. Richardson were appointed commissioners for the county and were authorized to select a location for the seat of justice at or near the geographical center.
