, a real estate website, just released a new blog titled "50 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Montana".  Although, you probably do know some of these obscure facts, there are some good ones on their list.

For example, did you know this? In Fort Benton, a cowboy once insisted on riding his horse to his room in the Grand Union Hotel. The manager objected, so the two exchanged gunfire. The Horseman was killed and, later, fourteen .44 slugs were found in his body.

Here's some other little known facts about the Treasure State:

Montana was the site of the first placement of a Gideon bible in a hotel room.
The first luge run in North America was built at Lolo Hot Springs
Fort Peck Dam is the largest earth-filled dam in the world
Beaver Creek Park in Hill County is the largest county park in the US
