Fort Benton MT Grand Union hotel (#0371)
The Grand Union hotel, on the levee in Fort Benton. The hotel was planned and built when Fort Benton, due to being the fartherest navigable point on the Missouri, was a center for passengers and shipping heading to other parts of the west. Unfortunately, the year it was finished, the railroad was completed and diminished Fort Benton's role. The hotel is nicely restored with an elegant restaurant on the lower level.
