So how does that effect Custer County. To my understanding this is a private organization that mainly concerns it self with the billings area?

Money is not being removed from Custer County. The contract was with Custer COUNTRY - with an R- a non-profit that contracted with the state to promote tourism in eastern Montana. I would imagine the state will now contract with a different agency to promote the region or possibly give more tax money directly to chambers of commerce and other local organizations.

Here is a map from 1895. Technically, Howdy is correct as the modern day Custer Country was all at one time a part of Custer County.

Some of us in Custer COUNTY have complained to the state tourism folks for years that Custer COUNTRY was a lousy name. Pioneer Country. Wild West Country. Frontier Country.

Someone who was on that Custer CountRy board in the eighties said all the printing contracts back then were being given to the same person. When I mentioned the latest scandal, she said the person's name and said they were at it twenty years ago.
