History In Southeast Montana

Out here in Southeast Montana, we don't just follow history—we've made it. From the Little Bighorn Battlefield, where Plains Indians clashed with Lt. Gen Custer and the 7th Cavalry, to the smallest county museum, you will find stories that still echo across this wide-open landscape.

Follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark, walk over battlefields where brave warriors and soldiers laid down their lives or experience the dynamics railroads and ranching brought to these rolling prairies.

The stories come alive with customizable tours and in the small communities where lore has been passed from generation to generation.

Afterall, what is history, if not a collection of stories told through different perspectives?

Follow the Story and then Write Your Own:

There is no doubt that the individuals, families and native peoples who made Southeast Montana their home were a hardy bunch. As you peruse the many museums, heritage centers and historic sites across Southeast Montana, put yourself in their shoes, read their stories and understand their journeys.
