Saco sits along the Hi-Line at the eastern edge of Phillips County, in the Milk River Valley along meandering Beaver Creek. It acquired a post office in 1892. A typical issue in 1912 promoted a contest for “best wheat” among seven states; announced that the Great Northern Railway was building eight new “hotel colonies” through Glacier National Park; published eight homesteader “prove up” notices; and summarized news from the nearby communities of Glasgow, Hinsdale, Valleytown, Beaverton, and Bodoin. When he purchased the Independent in 1912, editor William D. Miller promised his readers “a good, live newspaper always protecting and promoting the interests of the citizens of Saco and vicinity.” The Saco Independent ran until 1975.
