History
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.

    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!!

    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.
