Billings, Montana is the largest city in the state of Montana as well as the county seat of Yellowstone County. The area now known as Billings was first explored by Lewis and Clark but was not settled until the late 19th century. Before the railroad came to the area, Billings served as a trade center for much of the Montana Territory as goods were carried by paddle boat. In 1882, Billings was established as a town by the Northern Pacific Railroad as the railroad decided that they could make more money by establishing a new town along two sections of railroad. The new city was named after the president of the railroad, Frederick H. Billings.
Billings soon acquired the nickname, the “Magic City” because of the rapid growth that occurred there. Homesteaders came to the town to take up the offers of free land – typically 40-acre plots – on the prairie lands that were ideal for agriculture and cattle grazing. Early in the twentieth century Billings became a major energy center as natural resources of minerals, coal, gas and oil were discovered in Montana. In the years after the Second World War Billings grew to become not only an energy center, but also a major cultural, financial and medical center Montana, Northern Wyoming, North and South Dakota. The establishment of these industries brought development and increased growth in Billings’ downtown.
The history of development, industry and oil in Billings includes many occupations and job sites where asbestos products were popularly used, putting workers in Billings at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma cancer from asbestos exposure on the job.
