City of Scobey, Montana
The City of Scobey is the largest city and County Seat in Daniels County with a population of 1082 in an area consisting of one square mile. We are a small town with large town facilities, a progressive mind, and an awesome sense of community. Scobey, referred to as "The Center of the Universe" is known by many because, outside of wheat, our largest export has been people. However, we would like people to become our largest import.
