Plevna, Montana
A typical view in the countryside around Plevna

Plevna was originally named for the city of Pleven in Bulgaria. The settlement grew up around a railroad siding along what was originally the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (now the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe). Many of the original settlers were from east central Europe (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria), arriving in the late 1800's. The area is primarily filled with dryland wheat and grain farms. If it wasn't for the railroad tracks and grain elevators, there probably wouldn't be a town here now.
