About Our Venue
Over a century ago this beautiful, historic building was built as the centerpiece of Downtown Billings. It served as the venue of choice for many of the most important visitors in Billings’ history including presidents, governors, Hollywood celebrities and even visiting royalty. Today, the building has been lovingly restored and once again plays host to many of Billings’ most memorable celebrations.
The Billings Depot offers a dramatic, unique setting to host any event. The building is comprised of two main event spaces: the stunning passenger station, with its towering vaulted ceilings, roman columns, terrazzo floor and our signature high-arched window. The second space is the spacious baggage room featuring high ceilings, and original brick walls and wood floors.
The Billings Depot also features two outdoor courtyards and a back-patio area so your group to enjoy both indoor and outdoor environments.
For smaller events, a conference room is available which fits up to 25 people and all events have full use of our catering kitchen.

History of the Depot
The Billings Depot was built in 1909 for use by three railroad companies: Northern Pacific, Great Northern, and Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. Designed in the Beaux Arts Eclectic style, the four original buildings included the main depot building, railroad lunch room, postal building and an office building.
