About Wolf Point

Wolf Point is a city in and the county seat of Roosevelt County, Montana, United States. The population was 2,663 at the 2000 census. It is the largest community on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. Wolf Point is the home of the annual Wild Horse Stampede, held every year during the second weekend of July. Wolf Point's Stampede is the oldest rodeo in Montana, and has been called the "Grandaddy of all Montana Rodeos". In 2003, Wolf Point was named the official site of the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Works Progress Administration

One of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs that put people to work across the nation was the Works Progress Administration. This agency was responsible for the construction of the Roosevelt County Courthouse, an airport (the airplane hanger), a golf course, and a library. The Montana Highway Department on Front Street was built around this time. WPA project Fort Peck Dam created electricity, and the WPA erected electric lines in Wolf Point. Many people learned how to drive a car for the first time working on the Fort Peck Dam and roads were built around Wolf Point. In the WPA records, an armory is listed in the same line with roads. The armory and barracks were near the courthouse, today's library, and the Coliseum. Without the WPA funding, the Coliseum, which was torn down to make way for the new Senior Center, was an option for a courthouse. Less identifiable projects created in Wolf Point under Roosevelt include recreation, water wells, and storage sheds.

Wolf Point is located in north-eastern Montana at 48°5′29″N 105°38′33″W / 48.09139°N 105.6425°W / 48.09139; -105.6425 (48.091303, -105.642538), in the wide, shallow valley of the Missouri River, just below its confluence with Wolf Creek. Wolf Point is situated on the High Plains of eastern Montana. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.9 square miles (2.3 km²), all of it land.

The city is located on the north bank of the Missouri River, the southern part occupying the ancestral floodplain of that river. The northern part occupies south facing, low-lying hills overlooking the floodplain terrace. The central business district is located in the described southern portion.

Climate

Wolf Point experiences a semi-arid steppe climate (BSkw), with generally cold, dry winters and hot summers. Late spring and early summer is on average the wettest period of the year. During the summer warm, humid air masses more typical of a warm summer continental climate (Dfb) may move into the area from the south or east. Summertime thunderstorms commonly occur and sometimes can be severe featuring hail and, infrequently, funnel clouds or tornados.

Cold waves may cover the area 6 to 12 times per winter, with temperatures well below 0 °F (−17.8 °C). Between cold waves there are sometimes periods of longer than 10 days of mild, but often windy weather caused by Chinook winds. These winds cause temperatures to rise rapidly, often giving relief in the form of mild temperatures in the coldest months of the year.

Mathew Golik (November 4, 1948 - March 1, 2008) was the mayor between 1999 and 2008. He was appointed mayor in 1999 when the mayor at the time resigned.

On March 1 his three-wheeler went through the ice on Fort Peck Lake where he had been ice fishing and he drowned.
