Founded in 1876, Miles City is rich in history. Almost all of our major attractions have a tie back to the history of the city. To note just a few, the Range Riders Museum is one of the most recognized “Old West” Museums around, encompassing 11 buildings of artifacts, and local area history. The WaterWorks Art Museum houses works of the premiere artists in the country, in the original water works facility of Miles City. The Center’s sandstone and cement construction tells the real story of the past. The Miles City Academy, formerly Ursuline Convent, as well as our Historic Main Street and Residential Districts, act as a draw to the visitors of Miles City.
