Bonita, MT

Bonita, Montana
Missoula County. Along the Clark Fork River east of Clinton, Bonita was once on the Milwaukee Road and Northern Pacific lines. Two railroad tunnels pass through the Beavertail Hill just east of the former Bonita townsite. The name apparently came from Mexican section hands working on the Northern Pacific tracks in the 1880's; “bonita” is Spanish for “beautiful”. A post office operated in Bonita from 1886 (June 19) to 1942 (August 2). John Lovell served as the first postmaster.
