Columbus Montana

Located in: Yellowstone Country

Columbus began as a stage station on the Yellowstone Trail and is now a shipping center for the rich farm and ranch lands around it. Prosperity came when the Columbus quarry was chosen to furnish the stone for the state capitol in Helena. This project and other contracts for fine stone kept the quarries and the railroad busy for years.

This full-service community in the foothills of the Beartooths boasts the 'most scenic route to Yellowstone Park' via Montana Highway 78 and U.S. Highway 212 over the Beartooth Pass. Located at the confluence of the Stillwater and Yellowstone rivers, Columbus offers plenty of outdoor recreation. Visit the Museum of the Beartooths for an understanding of area history, including artifacts of the Rosebud River Crow Indians, Northern Pacific Railroad memorabilia and World War II history.

Columbus is located in south-central Montana, 41 miles west of Billings on I-90.
