the Story of Montana's Yellowstone Country

To know a place is to know its story. And the story of a place begins long before its storytellers. But at some point the land gives way to discovery and settlement by people seeking to establish a home or a refuge in a place both beautiful and inspiring.

In Yellowstone Country, the history of the land in all its grandeur is a dramatic story of raw and spectacular violent earth that was eventually inhabited by American Indians and later settled by miners, missionaries, trappers and ranchers.

As the story has lengthened and the landscape has evolved, the sense of place has remained one of deep admiration and respect, most notably in the designation of Yellowstone as America’s first national park, but also in the continuation of the entire region as a place of discovery. A place to make your own story.
