Who is Moving to Great Falls?

People have been moving to Great Falls and Montana in particular for decades.

Most people do not have a problem with that, unless of course they try and change Montana into what they just left.

In what might seem like a recent trend, more and more people are moving to the Big Sky.

Sadly, this trend is nothing new.

With just one quick Google I was able to find a story in the Chicago Tribune from 1992 that talks about how Montana was becoming the new home for many.

Californians are ruining Montana

Since the first big wave of migration to Montana seemed to be rich celebrities, I think there has been a perceived notion that Californians were the only ones moving to Montana.

Thanks to that perceived notion you also would hear that they are bringing their California liberal ideas to our state and trying to change what they loved about Montana in the first place.

It might surprise you then to find out that when it comes to Great Falls, California is not the state most people are leaving to come here.

It turns out more people are actually leaving the state of Texas to come to Montana.

People are moving to Great Falls from as far away as Alaska and even Connecticut.

So it's not just any certain state or any one group of people that are moving here and "ruining" Montana. It is all of these people in the list below. 😉
