Billings is the largest city in the U.S. state of Montana, located in the south-central portion of the state. Billings is rapidly growing; as of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 89,847, and a 2006 city estimate indicates the city's population has grown to 101,182. Billings is the county seat of Yellowstone County and is the principal city of the Billings Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of both Carbon and Yellowstone counties and Billings. Total area of the city was 106 square kilometers and its population density was 1,029 per square kilometers.
 
Billings was founded in 1877 and established in 1882 in the Montana Territory near the already existing town of Coulson. Coulson had been situated on the Yellowstone River, which made it ideal for the commerce that Steamboats brought up the river. Billings suffered from a major flood in 1937. After World War II, Billings boomed into a major financial, medical and cultural center in the region.
 
Today Billings continues to be the financial, medical, agriculural, and cultural center for the Northern Great Plains and continues to be the Star of the Big Sky Country. Billings has experienced continued growth in the recent years, never declining in population like most of the rest of the eastern portion of the state, as well as most of the Great Plains states. The city being divided into the Valley and the Heights by the Rims, a long cliff, also called the Rimrocks. Billings is surrounded by six mountain ranges, the Beartooth Mountains to the west, the Pryor Mountains and Bighorn Mountains to the south, the Crazy Mountains to the northeast, the Big Snowy Mountains to the north and the Wolf Mountains to the south east.
 
Billings is said the place of best geographical environment and can trace its origins back to prehistoric times. It enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
