Livingston Depot

Livingston Depot Center

 

Welcome to the Depot!

Livingston Depot Center The historic Livingston Depot was built in 1902 as the Northern Pacific Railroad's original access to Yellowstone National Park. 

Its majestic colonnade and ornate architectural detail greeted travelers until 1979, when AMTRAK suspended passenger service to southern Montana. Burlington Northern, successor to the NP, briefly used it for offices until donating it to the City of Livingston in 1985.

Livingston Depot CenterTwo years and $800,000 later, the restored depot opened as a museum operated by the Livingston Depot Foundation, a non-profit membership- based organization dedicated to preserving this monument

to the Livingston area's past.

The Depot Center Museum operates from Memorial Day to Labor Day, providing historic exhibits and cultural programs for the benefit of Park County residents and visitors from around the world. In the winter months, the Depot serves as a community cultural center, hosting such diverse events as concerts, banquets, holiday programs, and wedding receptions.

Besides serving the area for such festivities, the Depot also hosts community cultural events such as 

  • The "Blues at The Depot"

  •                
  • Big Brothers / Big Sisters' "Big Party"
  • "Big Railroad Blues" summer music festivals
  • Depot Bridge and Pinochle Night
  • Depot Railroad Swap Meet
  • Depot Festival of the Arts
  • Historical lectures

                         

 

       

                                                               

The "Livingston Depot" is situated on Park Street in downtown Livingston, aside Depot-Rotary Park and the passing train locomotives. The Depot Center itself is a lively junction of past and present History, cultural events, train whistles and all with the Northern Rockies for a backdrop!  Read more about us or learn how to get here with the links above.
