Sheridan, Montana > Sheridan, MT

Sheridan has a population of about 700 residents, with many more people living in rural areas. Located at the heart of the Ruby Valley, we have a full service medical center, nursing home, library, parks, and a public swimming pool.

History

People first started settling here in the 1860's. When the first post office was being established in 1866, the town needed a name. General Sheridan (also known as "little Phil") had gained prominence during the Civil War and a suggestion of naming the town after him was well received. The town of Sheridan was incorporated in 1893, with 350 residents and O.F. Parmeter as the first mayor.

Sheridan Schools

Elementary and Junior High (406) 842-5302

Construction on the new school was completed in 1999. Located on the block next to the high school, with the football field in between them, the new school is home to grades K-8, the cafeteria, and a large new gymnasium. With approximately 145 students and one class per grade, class sizes most often range within 10-20 students. Sheridan also has art, music, and physical education programs. Band instruction begins in 5th & 6th grade.

Junior high students, grades 7 & 8,  have their home rooms in the elementary building, though some of their classes are in the high school buildings. Junior high band members are a part of the high school pep band. 

High School (406) 842-5401

Sheridan's high school was built in 1938. The building that is now occupied by our music department was partially constructed with bricks from the original 1890 school. There are approximately 100 high school students from grades 9 through 12. 

The sports programs for junior high and high school students includes girls basketball and volleyball, boys basketball and football, and track.

Favorite Places

The library on Hamilton Street was built in 2000... turn off Main Street at Jensen's Market. There's comfortable seating for in-house reading and research, plus five computers available for public use. Young children have their own area with big floor pillows available for lounging on. There's a small park beside the library with a summer wading pool.
