Upon further exploration of this town, it is clear that Great Falls is difficult to pin down with a single identity. Only in Great Falls do scenic waterfalls on the Missouri River coexist with the world's tallest smokestack, built in 1908 and affectionately called "The Big Stack." Since before the city's incorporation in 1888, enterprising businesspeople in Great Falls have been harnessing the hydroelectric power provided by its waterfalls, earning the city a reputation as a prosperous industrial area.
