Billings Travel Guide
Welcome to Billings!
The town of Billings began quietly as a rail stop for the Northern Pacific Railroad. Today, it is Montana—s largest city and a gateway to the state's Western heritage and natural beauty. The Western Heritage Center in downtown Billings presents artifacts and photographs that document the Yellowstone River Valley—s development. Displaying contemporary art of the Rocky Mountains, the Yellowstone Art Museum showcases, among other items, the artwork of renowned Western artist Charles M. Russell. Other city attractions include MetraPark, Zoo Montana and Moss Mansion. Located 65 mi (105 km) from Billings towards the Wyoming border on Interstate 90 is the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, which marks the spot where the forces of General George A. Custer's American soldiers engaged American Indian tribes in battle in 1876. With a wide range of accommodations, Billings is also an ideal base to see Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park.
The Moss Mansion was built in the early 1900s for Preston B.
