Just across the road from the Boothill Inn a wonderful place to stay. The cemetery is interesting with some very odd graves with explanations of their death, whether they were shot doing their job as Sheriff's or killed getting involved with others problems.

A small cemetery where citizens of the long-lost city of Coulson, Montana, were buried. The future of Coulson depended on steamships for travel and commerce. Nearby Billings was built on the future of the railroads. We all know how that story ended. Too bad the...More

Although it has some interesting history about the town that died next to Billings there is little to see at this island between roads. The metal crosses are covered in tall grass and why not since there is no writing on them. This place is...More
