Ruby, Montana

Ruby Montana was originally known as Montana Camp, and was established in the 1870's. In 1909, Julius Andrews (as she was then known) made an application for a post office, and the town oficially received the name of Ruby on April 11, 1912. At one time more than 300 people called Ruby home, and it operated a school and store. The town's mines drew Lead and Gold until 1941.
Ruby is not an open access town. There is a caretaker. There are a dozen buildings in Ruby, including homes, the school and a warehouse.
