Ronan's Visitors Center

Ronan's Mission Mountain Country Visitor's Center is a community project of the community of Ronan whose aim is to serve summer visitors to the Mission Valley in Western Montana.

The community operates the visitor's center from Memorial Day through Labor Day of each summer tourism season. The visitor's center building is a hand-hewn log structure that was built in the 1870's and was used at the Sloan Stage Stop on the Dixon to Polson stagecoach line in the latter quarter of the 19th century. The building had fallen into disrepair and was relocated on property that was developed into the Mission Mountain Country Club in the 1980's. The cabin was moved off the site by Ronan State Bank and was eventually donated to the community for the purposes of being restored into a visitor's information center.  The project was spearheaded by the Lake County Community Development Corporation which raised community support for the project and secured the assistance of the US Forest Service who awarded a grant to further the project.

The site is provided by Glacier Banks and the building and improvements are owned by the Lake County Community Development Corporation. The center is operated by employees partially paid for by a grant from the Glacier Country Regional Tourism Commission and organized by the Ronan Chamber of Commerce. Plans are currently being developed to further improve and repair the Center.

Although the Visitor Information Center is open seasonally, the Chamber of Commerce is open year round.  Ronan and the Mission Valley area are serviced by Glacier International Airport in Kalispell, MT and Missoula International Airport in Missoula, MT.
