History

Parent County

1919--Pondera County was created 17 February 1919 from Chouteau and Teton Counties.
County seat: Conrad [2]

Boundary Changes

The Montana legislature created Pondera County in 1919 from Chouteau and Teton Counties with Conrad as the county seat. Local lore suggests that Pondera is either the phonetic spelling of the French word “Pend d’Oreille” meaning hanging earring or “pain d’or” meaning golden bread for the color of the native grasses in the area. Wheat production remains the main industry for the county.
