The most populated and second most affluent city in the state of Montana, with about 100,000 residents.
Also called the Yellowstone City because of its close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, or the Magic City because of its fast growth.
In the early 1990s, the KKK and other Neo Nazi organizations tried to set up bases in Billings. After a large number of hate crimes against the city's tiny minority populations, however, the city banded together and drove the groups out. This was the subject of the PBS documentary, "Not in Our Town."
Derek Vineyard, the lead character from the film American History X, is based partially on the story of Billings resident Clinton Snipes.
