The character of Ennis, Montana is best described as a combination of country
and cosmopolitan. This spirit is reflected in the makeup of the citizenry
and the blending of a small-town urban environment in the midst of natural
resources like the Madison River, snow-capped mountains and wide-open spaces.
Quality-of-life in Madison County is maintained and enhanced by a high
level of public participation in community affairs. Local business interests
and supportive individuals have traditionally contributed and volunteered
their time, energy and resources to make this the very special place that
it is. A sterling example of this involvement and dedication is the Madison
Valley Medical Center. The community organized and united around the idea
that excellent, local health care can be attained. They raised over $4
million to augment financing this endeavor and the result is a medical
facility that is a model for rural medicine.
