Radersburg was one of the first boom towns in the Montana Territory. Early mining camps, specifically the Keating Mine in 1866 and the East Pacific claim in 1867 brought prospectors and business people to the area and created a home for 1,000 residents.
Radersburg, A Town that Split the Difference, received its name from the founder, Reuben Rader. Rader donated 40 acres and laid out the town site in early 1866, the Public Land office entered it as a town on July 16, 1872.
Actress Myrna Loy was born in Radersburg and appeared in 129 movies from the 1920ís through the 1950ís.
