MILES CITY

Steeped in Western history, Miles City remains a true Western town. Vast stretches of plains and badlands branch out in all directions. The Yellowstone and Tongue rivers flow unblemished in long sections. Once the horse trading and livestock center of the country, Miles City still has weekly livestock auctions and, once a year, puts on the Bucking Horse Sale for rodeo stock buyers and breeders.

The cavalry set camp at the mouth of the Tongue River on the Yellowstone River after the 1876 campaign of "rounding up hostile Indians." Their commanding officer was Colonel Nelson A. Miles and this camp was the beginning of Miles City. It soon became a stopping place on the long cattle drives from Texas. As the cattle industry became more important, it was fitting that the Montana Stockgrowers Association was formed here in 1884. The coming of the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1881 predetermined that Miles City should become, and still is, a leading cattle market.Steeped in Western history, Miles City remains a true Western town.

Classic cars, wagons and restored old farm equipment are in good supply. The museum complex is set on the original site of the Fort Keogh.The Eastern Montana Fair is a four-day event beginning in August.

Miles City's heralded art center, the Custer County Art Center, located in a park overlooking the Yellowstone River, is a nonprofit institution providing quality visual arts exhibits and programming. The art center has two large, elegant galleries and an alcove gallery, with changing exhibitions throughout the year from its permanent collection and exhibitions from around the United States.On a hot summer day take a refreshing dip in Miles City's unique outdoor municipal pool, an oasis located next to the city park, which is perfect for picnicking or just relaxing. Just a short distance from the pool is a recreation area with boating facilities. Plenty of fishing sites may be found along the Tongue and Yellowstone rivers, and a number of reservoirs in the Miles City area are also available for fishing. A variety of other recreational activities are available: tennis, golf, bowling, racquetball, movies and river floating.Elevation: 2,358 feet.
