General info

Since the American West’s early days, Billings has hosted a cast of famous figures: Custer, Calamity Jane, Buffalo Bill, Crazy Horse, Lewis & Clark and others.

To follow Billings’ official beginnings as a city, you only need to follow rivers and railroads. After Lewis & Clark finished their historic expedition across the West, numerous explorers began pushing westward along the many wild rivers, laying railroad tracks as they went.

The Northern Pacific Railroad followed the Yellowstone River, and trainloads of people followed soon after. Just a mile upriver from an established trans-shipment point on the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers was a valley surrounded by Rimrocks and mountains—an ideal place for a settlement. And so Billings, the “Magic City” was born.

Today, you’ll still find glimpses of yesterday throughout the valley. With mansions, museums, galleries and many other historic sites, this city never forgets its past.

Your tour starts at the Billings Chamber Visitor Center where you can get loads of good information on the area. The tour covers nine miles and about 25 minutes of drive time, but you will want to allow at least four hours to stop at every
