The Historic Billings Depot




Over a century ago, the Billings Depot was built as the centerpiece of downtown Billings, serving as the venue of choice for many of the most important visitors in Billings' history, including numerous presidents, governors, Hollywood celebrities, and even visiting royalty! Today, the beautiful historic building has been painstakingly restored, and once again plays host to many of Billings most memorable events, including hundreds of beautiful and unique weddings. Add your wedding celebration to the venue's rich history. Say, "I Do," in the dramatic setting of the depot. The stunning "Passenger Station," one of the depot's main spaces, boasts towering vaulted ceilings, roman columns, gleaming terrazzo floor, and signature high arched window. The spacious "Baggage Room," also features high ceilings but has a rustic feel accented by original brick walls and wood floors. You can conveniently host ceremony and reception on-site. Exchange vows in the depot's magical outdoor setting. Gainan's Courtyard is ideal for smaller ceremonies and Trailhead Plaza, for large or "super-sized" ceremonies. After the ceremony, eat, toast, and dance in celebration of your new life together.
