Explore the South Siders traveling exhibit as it highlights the lesser recognized side of the city of Billings. When the city was established, the railroad built the tracks in the center of town, creating two distinct sections; civic development was pushed north, and blue collar work and minority groups were pushed south. Explore the rich history, diversity, and stories of south side Billings.

Virtual exhibit provided with support from Healthy by Design.
