Pompey's Piller ViewCaptain William Clark carved his name on a towering sandstone butte. He named the butte Pompeys Tower (later became Pompeys Pillar) and it became the only remaining physical evidence of the Lewis and Clark Expedition along the Trail. He made note of it in his journal on July 25, 1806. This guided tour will retrace Sergeant Pryor's bull boat and horse capturing experiences as we travel to Pompeys Piller from Billings. Indian lore will be shared as you rest under the shade viewing the Yellowstone River and listening to the birds. We will bring you up in time from the fur trading era to pioneer settlement and present day farming and ranching with a stop at the Agriculture Center. Can participate in a guided tour that includes a short walk on a board walk and steps to Clark's-signature. There is also a Gift Shop available that also provides a historical documentary of the expedition.
