The Billings Depot, built in 1909, started as a complex for three railroad companies: the Northern Pacific, the Great Northern and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. The buildings featured a waiting area for 200 passengers in addition to a smoking room, a ladies’ waiting room, a baggage area, services offices, a lunch room and a mailroom. By 1931 the depot welcomed 26 passenger trains daily. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and the last passenger train left this station in 1979. The building underwent renovation in 1995 and helds its first events in 2001.

The Billings Depot was the most perfect venue we could have asked for!! It was incredible having our ceremony and reception all in the same place without having to travel anywhere. Even before we decorated, it was already a beautiful venue. Once the decorations went up and the tables where set, it became the most amazing spot for us to have our dream wedding. Everyone we had the pleasure of working with was super friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Only negatives we would like to highlight was one of the bartenders wasn’t very friendly and they could use better security as this venue is downtown and has a lot of foot traffic. Other than those two minor issues we would definitely recommend having your event here!Sent on 12/03/2019

Love the staff! Extremely friendly staff and very willing to work with me, even though I lived across country. Made everything very simple and easy and less stressful! The venue is beautiful with all the historic charm! While many couples have gotten married here it is easy to make it your own by adding some personal style and decorations. Love the Depot!!Sent on 04/19/2016
Always a pleasure working with the Depot. The venue is a great location for a wedding! We always look forward to DJing there. The staff is great and willing to work with you to make sure everything is perfect.
Highly recomment the Depot in Billings as a venue for any event especially for weddings. Lighting, management/employees and decor are excellent....
The Historic Depot is an amazing venue to have a wedding and reception. Located on the Historic Montana Avenue with many fabulous bars, restaurants, and shops, and just a few blocks from great hotel accommodations. Staff are great to work with - book early and check out their new Gainans Courtyard for an outdoor ceremony.
