Real estate, homes for sale
Roundup, Montana is a rather small city, but the county seat of Musselshell County. It has only
two neighborhoods but a wonderful small-town atmosphere. It is the 44 th largest community in the
state, which really means it is among the smaller communities in the state. The Musselshell River runs
through the community and the Bull Mountains run along the town’s southside. As it is a small town
there is no public transportation and daily commutes must be made in private vehicles, however, the
town also has low crime rates, quiet streets and plenty of room to run, not a bad trade off. It is a
somewhat educated community, where over 15% of adults have four-year degrees or more. European
ancestry is most common among residents and the majority of residents identify as Caucasian. Common
ancestries include German, English, Irish and others. English remains the town’s primary spoken
language, though some residents also speak Italian and Tagalog.
The city spans approximately 1.34 square miles of land area. It has a mixed workforce with
neither white nor blue collar workers being dominant. It is a low-income community compared to state
statistics and a lower-middle income compared to federal standards. In 2017, the population was
estimated at 1,867 and the population density is approximately 1,300 people per square mile. In 2106,
the estimated median household income in Roundup was $131,651 and the estimated per capita
income was $22,273. In the same year, the median house or condo value in the community was $90,382
and the median gross rent was $530.
The community began when cattlemen began to use the area as a “roundup” spot for cattle
drives. Early industries in the area included agriculture, cattle and coal mines. The community served as
the trailhead of the Centennial Cattle Drive. Roundup has been the home of some rather notable
historic figures like Earl W. Bascom, rodeo pioneer, cowboy and Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee. Another
famous resident was Lieutenant General Paul “Butch” Funk, commander of the 3 rd Armored Division
“Spearhead” of Operation Desert Storm. Today, it has grown into a warm and thriving little community.

District, Roundup Elementary and Roundup Junior/Senior High. The community is also the home of the
Musselshell Valley Historical Museum, which displays exhibits of the area’s history as well as numerous
Native American Artifacts. The town features a beautiful city park, three baseball/softball fields, a soccer
