The elevation is 3,966 feet. Molt appears on the Molt U.S. Geological Survey Map.
Molt thrived as a busy and well developed agricultural community on the edge of Stillwater county. Several large grain elevators were erected and a few historic buildings are still standing today. The Northern Pacific Railway had a stop in Molt en route to Rapelje and Hesper.
Although the town has declined significantly with the withdrawal of the railroad, a few of its elevators are still in operation.
A post office was first established in the Molt area in 1909. The office was originally known as Stickley and was located on a nearby ranch. In 1918, the office was moved to town and the name changed to Molt (named for the person who donated the land for the townsite).
