The county seat is Montague (population 400). Its biggest town is Bowie (population 5,220). Montague County also has the communities of Nocona (population 3,035) and St. Jo (population 1,000). Nocona Hills (population 675) and Sunset (population 340) are much smaller. There are also several other unincorporated developments in the county.
Montague has grown minimally over the years. It remains small, however, the census-designated place has seen an increase in the number of people from the 2010 and 2000 census. Montague was developed in 1858 after the land was donated to locals from the state of Texas. The small community is serviced by the Montague Independent School District which educates children eighth grade and below. Older students attend high school at nearby Nocona.
Bowie is the largest town in Montague County. It is not to get confused with Bowie County, which is in northeastern Texas and includes the Texas and Arkansas border town of Texarkana. Bowie received a lift from the arrival of the Fort Worth and Denver Railway in the late-19th century. The city has its own independent school district as well as a satellite campus of North Central Texas College.
Montague County is home to part of the Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland. The grassland is part of the Great Plains of northern Texas. It exists near Decatur and is primary used for outdoor recreation. Local residents of the county enjoy visiting Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland where hiking, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, and camping are common. Ranches also continue to use the land for livestock. What is unique about Lyndon B. Johnson is that camping is free, and practically available in any part of the territory.
