The old power plant
newbie
Posted by Berta (+17) 26 days ago
I am wondering if anyone can tell me anything about the old MDU/Montana Power Plant (?) that was at the corner of Bridge and 9th, between Bridge and the railroad tracks, and had a big smokestack next to it. It was there in the 40s-70s or later, but I do not have exact dates. Any information, or source for information, would be appreciated. Thank you.

We toured the old power plant while in CCHS in the very late 50's or early 60's. At that time they informed us that the plant was capable of powering about ½ of the city. By 1965 they had installed a gas turbine generator east of town. As to the date Montana Dakota Utilities demolished plant I do not recall.
