Two Other Landmarks
Last week, in this column, we mentioned two landmarks that had some significance with the Tongue and Yellowstone river irrigation canal--Lake Jordan and King's Bluff. There are two other landmarks just south of town that are well worth mentioning also--Camelback Hill, which lies just south of the Northern Pacific stockyards on the reservation, is one. We do not know who named this butte, but it is easy to see from its formation why it was so named. The other land mark is Hurley's Bluff. This bluff is the high point on the ranch now occupied by Dr. Thompson, opposite the Catholic cemetery. Michael Hurley and his family came to Montana in 1877. Mr. Hurley at that time was a member of the infantry stationed at Keogh. Soon after his discharge from the service, he filed on the land just re ferred to. He obtained patent to the land in 1888. The Hurley family consisted of several girls and two boys. The younger boy, John, was struck by lightning in Becker's Lane around the turn of the century. Anna Hurley, the youngest daughter, married Elmer Neff, well known butcher, and resided in Terry until her demise. The older boy, Bill Hurley, still resides in Terry. He was awarded the Half Century Club cane not too many years ago.
