Babb was named for C. C. Babb, district engineer in charge of the St. Mary's Irrigation Project. In 1912 Babb became the headquarters for the Reclamation Service Project that diverted water from St. Mary's River into the Milk River.(from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)


On the eastern edge of Glacier National Park, Babb is near two of the park's entrances. The entrance out of St.Mary by way of the Going-to-the-Sun Road along St. Mary Lake and the Many Glacier Entrance along Lake Sherburne.

The town is located along St. Mary River and is a scenic area for embarking on your Glacier getaway. There are numerous outdoor activities and scenic views just minutes away from this small town. Just east of Babb is Duck Lake famous for big rainbow trout. Duck Lake is the pride of the Blackfeet Fish and Game Department stocking programs, producing rainbows often over 10 pounds and occasional larger browns. For a nearby cultural attraction; Browning offers a perspective into the Native American life at the Museum of the Plains Indians.
