What's Red White and Blue and found in Ismay Montana?

The answer is the Post Office.  Ismay is a small town in Eastern Montana.  In 1993 they unofficially changed the name to Joe Montana at the suggestion of three Kansas City disc jockeys on radio station KYSS.  It brought the small town quite a bit of publicity.

The town of Ismay at one time was a Freight Station on the Bismark - Ft Keogh, Army Trail 1875-1881.  Lee Nemitz Trucking is a business in Ismay that currently hauls freight.

Many buildings from a gone-bye age still survive but are showing their age.  Ismay Grain Company is one of the local businesses.  Sprinkled through the town are vintage tractors and trucks.

It is truly a town with a rich history - my hope is that it continues to endure
