Bloomfield (Montana, USA)
Bloomfield, a village, population 30 in 1950, of Dawson County, Montana, located about half way between Glendive and Richey, was situated about 50 miles (80 km) from the east border of the state and about 110 miles (175 km) south of the Canadian border. It was the center of two Mennonite congregations—the Red Top Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), four miles (6.5 km) east of Bloomfield, and the Bethlehem Mennonite Church (General Conference Mennonite), 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Bloomfield. Mennonites (MC) were moving to Glendive in the mid-20th century while General Conference Mennonites were moving to Richey and Glendive. Both conferences had mission stations in Glendive. Both congregations still existed in 2006 as part of Mennonite Church USA.
