Located at the junctions of State Highways 27 and 29, at the west end of the Partner 29 corridor along the Old Yellowstone Trail. Cadott was named after Jean Baptiste Cadotte, the son of a fur trader who established a fur trading post here in the early 1830’s. the first permanent settler was Robert Marriner who built a log cabin and sawmill in 1865, beginning the lumbering and mill industries which served as the foundation of Cadott’s first growth.
