About Livingston

Livingston is located on the Yellowstone River and was originally the gateway to Yellowstone National Park. In 1806, Captain William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition, alongside Sacajawea, actually camped near what is now Livingston!

Livingston has a long history dating back to 1882. Before that, it was a trading post called Benson's Landing, but then Northern Pacific Railway came along and renamed it Clark City.

Soon after, Clark City was moved and then renamed to Livingston after one of NPR's stockholders and director, Johnston Livingston.

NPR also built a railroad, which was to become the town's main source of income. Livingston was also the occasional home to the famous Calamity Jane!

Since then Livingston is grown into an eclectic town that will offer you so many opportunities. Whether you're into history, arts & culture, outdoor recreations or even just shopping; Livingston has something for you!
