Having lived in Billings my whole life, it is interesting to hear reviews regarding not being able to find the Boot Hill Cemetery. It is located off Main street in the heights right behind Boot Hill Hotel, it is not difficult to find, if everyone follows the signs. In regard to it being small, it is again the oldest cemetery....

We went up there to check it out and saw Kelly's memorial and took a walk past the end of the road, look for the cemetery but still couldn't find it. Good views of the city.

We visited Boot Hill Cemetery in July 2016. It is a very small, simple exhibit which took about 5 minutes to see. The hill overlooks an unattractive industrial area, so we were a bit disappointed.

There are two historical points of interest in this cemetery but it's no Tombstone in terms of visitor appeal. There's also a lot of long grass. (The lawn mower was invented in 1830 - Billings City needs to buy one.) If you're staying nearby, allow five minutes to look around. but don't go out of your way.

On the outskirts of the main town, on a hill and interesting. Several stone markers, but mostly metal crosses. A little history of the cemetary is given at the entrance.

I grew up on a little farm just next to the Boothill Cemetery. Today, it offers not only great personal memories, but also a living sense of Montana's past. Perfect place for a summer afternoon, or any other time of the year.

While in Montana we had to stop by this historic battlefield on the drive to Wyoming. Amazing to learn more and see where the actual battles took place.

If you are staying or visiting near downtown Billings or near the MetraPark arena, stop in at the historic Boothill Cemetery. It is located on the back side of the Rimrocks overlooking Applebees Restaurant. Boothill Cemetery, on the National Register of Historic Places, is a quick, free, stop. Boothill served as the cemetery for the town of Coulson, a town... More
