What is Darby, Montana like? According to Wikipedia, "the population was 783 at the 2020 census and Darby is located near the southwestern border of Montana and Idaho, along the Continental Divide. Officially established in 1889, the town was named after James W. Darby who signed the post office application."


For Montanans looking to get out of the 'bigger cities' in the state, moving to Darby might be an option. If you still need to work and are not of retirement age, owning a small business could generate some income - and this cute business is about as "Montana" as it gets.
