Nestled on the banks of the Yellowstone River, Livingston is surrounded by three mountain ranges: the Crazy, Absaroka and Bridger mountains.
Livingston is located about 55 miles from the Roosevelt Arch and the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park, the country's first national park. With a population of 7,000, Livingston provides all the amenities of a major city but offers the safety and charm of small-town living.
Whether searching for a quaint mountain town to spend a vacation or wanting a good place to start a new business, Livingston might be just what you're looking for.
The City of Livingston offers a tremendous array of activities. Entertainment, educational and outdoor activities can be found throughout the city, most of which are within walking distance.
The Livingston area was a favorite hunting ground for many Native American tribes with the surrounding bluffs frequently used as buffalo jumps. The Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through the area crossing the Yellowstone in July of 1806.
After the railroad was cut through the west, Livingston became a burgeoning city. By the turn of the Twentieth century, when President Teddy Roosevelt established Yellowstone as the countries first national park, more than 10,000 tourists per week flooded the community on their way to the park.
Many generations of railroaders, gunslingers and movie stars have called Livingston home, adding to its diversity.
