Bank Check Revenue Stamped Paper The Isdell Mercantile Company 1900
The Isdell Mercantile Company was created in 1869 by N. Isdell in the town of Pony, Montana. Once called the "metropolis of the Madison Valley" by the Madisonian, Pony was a boom town created by major quartz discoveries in 1875. The mercantile was incorporated in 1892. By 1900 the town had a schoolhouse, bank, newspaper, hotels, and several saloons. This growth, made possible by wealth from local mining operations, allowed the small store to prosper. The Isdell Mercantile provided hardware, mining supplies, and various dry goods to the community.
The town, which once had a population over 1,000 in 1900, was completely abandoned by the 1940s. The mercantile went out of business when the quartz mining was halted in the Pony area.
