Our town has remained nostalgic for hundreds of years and is located just 20 miles from Havre, Montana: a larger community on Highway 2.  Our population is around 1200 and we have numerous beautiful parks.  Chinook once was home to a massive Sugarbeet Factory, which in fact, is the reasoning behind our "strange" mascot.  According to Jay Leno, it ranked number 2 out of 100 "strangest mascots" in the U.S.  Oil and gas discoveries have also from time to time, given our economy a boost, yet the major industry still remains agriculture.
