Revere, Missouri
Population: 79

“Founded on October 22, 1887 by the Santa Fe Railroad, Revere was ‘probably named in honor of Paul Revere.’ During the period prior to 1900, Revere flourished as an intermediate stop for the railroad.

Revere was a town into the 2000s, but it became a village after a change in state law: a 2009 law provided for the conversion of all towns with fewer than five hundred residents into villages. On July 26, 2011 the United States Postal Service announced plans to consider closing the Revere post office as part of a nationwide restructuring plan. On May 9, 2012 it was announced that a new strategy would preserve the nation’s smallest post offices, reversing the earlier plan.”

Explore the Upper Missouri with #mypubliclandsroadtrip this weekend for solitude and stunning scenery!

The Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Montana spans 149 miles of the Upper Missouri River, the adjacent Breaks country, and portions of Arrow Creek, Antelope Creek and the Judith Rivers. The monument includes six wilderness study areas, the Cow Creek Area of Critical Environmental Concern, segments of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and the Nez Perce National Historic Trail, the Fort Benton National Historic Landmark, a watchable wildlife area and the Missouri Breaks Back Country Byway. In 1976, Congress designated the Missouri River segment and corridor in this area a National Wild and Scenic River.

The area has remained largely unchanged in the nearly 200 years since Meriwether Lewis and William Clark traveled through it on their epic journey. Within the monument, you can float the river, fish, hike, hunt, drive for pleasure – or simply find a little solitude and enjoy a sense of exploration in this beautiful natural setting.
