Billings in Yellowstone County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
Montana's 70 Million Year Old Beach
A number of local buildings and homes use the sandstone for foundations or exterior walls. The Parmly Billings Library, now the Western Heritage Center, and several buildings at Rock Mountain College were constructed using local sandstone. A returning visitor to Billings in 1926, amazed by the growth of the city commented, "the Rimrocks haven't changed much."
