Historical Things to Do in Lewistown and Central Montana

Lewistown's modern history starts around 1874 with the establishment of Camp Lewis. Following that, the area went through a number of changes as the Metis, cattlemen and sheep ranchers, miners, farmers, and the railroad brought new people, cultures, and lifestyles into town.

Prior to that, Lewis and Clark made their way through our area. But Central Montana's documented history goes back way farther than that; the Bear Gulch Pictographs date back as early as 1000 CE. Pick one of the places below to go experience a blast from the past.
