My Town: Melissa Anderson - Ennis
KXLH - almost 5 years
Throughout the month of May, we're taking you back to where the KXLH news team grew up in our "My Town" series. KXLH reporter Melissa Anderson is a proud Montanan who grew up in one of most scenic areas of the Treasure State imaginable. Read her story below, click the photos for larger views, and watch the video, as Melissa goes back to Ennis. Tucked inside the Madison Valley, between the popular tourist attractions of Virginia City and West Yellowstone, is a quaint old western community called Ennis that is my home town. With a population still only around 1000 people, Ennis survives mainly on ranching, agriculture, some mining, but mainly tourism from the famous Madison River, world-famous for blue-ribbon fly fishing. While the size of main street Ennis hasn't changed many of the faces and businesses have. The hospital where I was born has now been replaced by a newer model. A portion of the old one sits west of town atop a hill, and now houses Madison Valley's History Museum.
