Join us for tales of the dark side of Billings
Think you know Billings? Join us for tales of the dark side of Billings history, tales that you won't find in the history books. Tales of rumrunners, and ladies of the night, Chinatown, the mysterious tunnels that once linked downtown Billings, Billings' one-and-only lynching, and the ghost that appeared for years after. Tonight we travel the streets of historic downtown Billings with history that describes the haunting of a particular barstool or wear a hard hat! You’re welcome to hoist a cold brew at a haunted bar after the tour. But if you don’t believe in ghosts, then avoid one particular barstool or wear a hard hat!
The first motel in Billings has a ghost in room 226 and children footsteps running in an upstairs hallway when no children are present. Odd things do sometimes happen on our tours, so we encourage guest to bring cameras and tape recorders along. Come and enjoy the history of Billings with some stories of haunted places or things.
