Savenac Nursery Historic District is located near Haugan in Mineral County, Montana. It is 15 miles from St. Regis, Montana. Savenac was once one of the largest and oldest USDA Forest Service tree nurseries in the western United States, operating from 1907 until 1969. The nursery was created by Elers Koch, of the Forest Service, who also helped fight the Great Fire of 1910 that destroyed much of the northern Rocky Mountains, including the nursery. Savenac once produced over 12 million seedlings annually for use in reforestation of national forests throughout the United States. Its former operations have been moved to the Coeur d'Alene Nursery in Idaho.
