Welcome to Smead ...

So far, we have found very little information about Smead. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Smead to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Smead, please Contact Us.


Smead would have been located within present day Sanders County<2>.

We aren't confident of the location of Smead, so consider the above location as an estimate.<3>

While the community is gone, the present day location for Smead is 2,180 feet [664 m] above sea level.<4> In other words, the altitude of Smead is about ½ mile above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where Smead was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel south from Smead (for example, toward Osburn (ID)), you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

If Smead still existed, it would have been in the (406) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Smead, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Montana's counties, including Sanders, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Smead - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Smead) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Smead. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from SmeadOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Smead. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.0207, Longitude: -115.8548       In this case, the coordinates for Smead have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
