Powder River Heritage
You get a feeling of authenticity here, cuz the western heritage that characterized much of what made the Old West what it was still courses through the blood of the folks who farm, ranch, and work here. It’s embedded in the spirit of the land. The history of the Broadus, Montana region from Rapid City to Billings and the surrounding areas defined many policy decisions in Washington, D.C.—many of which still remain policy even today.
Originally this was Native American land, but as the country grew and gold was discovered, an influx of white settlers and entrepreneurs from back East made the area feel a bit crowded. Broadus sits pretty much in the middle of all those things you learned in American history class, from the Battle of Powder River—just down the road apiece—to the Battle of the Little Bighorn and the final battles of the Black Hills War. We’re the perfect stopping-off spot when yer traveling west from all the Old West towns and national parks that line the border between South Dakota and Montana, either on your way to Yellowstone National Park or to study the abundant history and many things to do in the Broadus, Montana area. This place is the gateway to Southeastern Montana.
