- General info
“Old Fort Gilbert” was situated directly east of this point on the west bank of the Yellowstone River. The Fort was named after Colonel Gilbert, a one-time commanding officer at Fort Buford, and existed between the years 1864 and 1867. It was used as a trading center in the lower Yellowstone Valley. This point also marks the southern boundary of the Fort Buford Military Reservation, which post operated for many years on the north bank of the Missouri River at the mouth of the Yellowstone.
By taking the side road just north of here and going west a short distance to Fort Gilbert Lookout Point, on the bluffs, you have an excellent view of the Yellowstone Valley. Well worth the drive.
