The Boothill Cemetery is a historic site in Billings, Montana. It tells of the interesting story of the now defunct town of Coulson, Montana and its residents.

According to local lore, the Boothill Cemetery is the burial ground of Coulson, the rough cow town that preceded Billings which existed from 1877 to 1885. The site has burials as early as 1854.

The curious thing about the Boothill Cemetery is that most of its dead died from violent causes. It is also said that most of the people buried here passed away while wearing their boots on, thus the name, as some speculates.

Formerly known as the Coulson Hill Cemetery, the Boothill Cemetery?s most popular burial is Muggins Taylor, known for being the scout who carried the news of Custer?s Last Stand to the world.
