The current certified population of Montezuma is 966 and we are a self-sufficient and fast growing community.  The main industries in our area are agriculture or agricultural-related.  You can find a list of the area businesses under Business District.  We have two new residential additions and an industrial park for new business development.  Montezuma is a clean town with many positive qualities not found in most small towns of its size, such as paved streets, medical services, three churches, a grocery store, a city library and a weekly newspaper. In fact, with the exception of a clothing store, most everything a person needs can be found in Montezuma. Other assets of Montezuma are Bethel Home,a renowned extended care facility, a senior citizen center, a nine-hole golf course, an RV park, and a municipal airport which was recently paved. 

            The biggest addition to Montezuma is Gray County Wind farm.  The wind farm is located just east of town on Highway 56 and consists of 170 wind generators.  It generates enough electricity to power around 30,000 homes.  It promises to be a big economic boost to our small town.

             We have our own museum, the Stauth Memorial Museum, which hosts traveling exhibits from the Smithsonian Institute and other national and international traveling exhibit services. There are also permanent displays of artifacts from the Stauth’s extensive travels, Howard Wall’s collection of Frederic Remington’s art, and Ralph Fry’s wildlife collection.

            Our school system is also different than most in that, instead of being consolidated with other schools in our area, we have a sharing agreement with the town of Copeland, located 11 miles west of Montezuma. The schools in our town consist of a preschool, elementary school, high school, and learning center, with the middle school being located in Copeland.  The schools have recently been renovated with the addition of a new gymnasium/all-purpose room, library/multi media room, elementary school and middle school. We have an excellent teaching staff and offer a diverse course of studies. We also have excellent art, forensics, music, and debate programs.  The sports programs offered are football, cross-country, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track, and golf.

            Montezuma has an active planning commission and a recreation commission that runs the summer ball programs and swimming pool. The recreation commission also organizes community activities throughout the year such as ski trips, skating and bowling excursions. We have several organizations in Montezuma such as Lions Club, Red Hat Sociaty, Boy & Girl Scouts, and the Crooked Creek Country Club that sponsors tournaments and other activities at the golf course.  Our Senior Center is also very active in our community furnishing noon meals for the elderly that are home bound, having carry- in dinners with special programs, and sponsoring outings to activities in other cities.  This makes Montezuma an attractive place to live for young families and the elderly.
