The provided census information is completely inaccurate. I worked for the census as a supervisor. I counted households in that area, private homes and Native American lands. I was a resident of Montgomery Creek for 12 years. At that time the local school district had a student body of 96. The percentage of Native American Residents is much higher. The sign entering town says 610 people.
