Fast Tracks to Paradise: How the Railroad Shaped the Town of Livingston, Montana

May 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In Fast Tracks to Paradise, Paul Shea looks at how, beginning in 1883, the railroad’s plans for shops and a spur line to Yellowstone National Park shaped the growth of Livingston and continued to impact the town for the next 104 years.

Paul Shea began as Director of the Yellowstone Gateway Museum, Livingston, in 2009, after serving ten years as Executive Director of the newly formed Yellowstone Historic Center in West Yellowstone, Montana.  His first task in Livingston was to completely re-exhibit the museum and install a new heating and cooling system. Paul conducts research and gives interpretive programs. He has been a member of the Museums Association of Montana since 2000, serving on the Board of Directors for ten years, four years as President.
