The City of Owen was founded in 1883, by the lumber baron, John S. Owen. Incorporated in 1904, the historic main street is still a reminder of the "Good Old Days". The Woodland Hotel is the centerpiece of Central Avenue which is situated on the Yellowstone Trail. At the end of "Main Street" is the Old Owen School, recent addition to the State and National Historical Registers. The School is used today for many community events such as concerts, art fairs and an after-school program. The tranquil yet busy area is a welcome respite to weary travelers off busy Highway 29. Outdoor recreation is the name of the game for Owen residents and visitors alike. Convenient to many fishing spots, hunting areas, hiking, biking and picnicking, the cities parks are a get away of their own. Owen is central to many destinations on snowmobile trails as well. The Millpond is always an active place with its welcoming atmosphere. Our golf course offers 9 holes of challenging golf right within the city. Whether sightseeing or just passing by, Owen is a welcoming place that will bring you back!
