Does anyone know were all the entrances for the underground tunnels are in Billings, Mt and also if they are still doing the tours?

Being a big fan of urban exploration, I too would like to know about these underground tunnels.

They are not all sealed.

I got in from underneath the Dude Rancher Lodge a while back. A friend worked at the front desk, the entrance is not hidden at all, right in a hallway. Go in the front door, make a left, then another, then down some stairs to "storage". They have a ton of old chairs and such down there, but beyond that mess it heads straight down town. Pitch black, no skylights like you see downtown, they were surely paved over.

I know there are a few other buildings with access too. Nothing connects anymore, they're all dead ends, bricked up between almost every building. But, the one at the Dude Rancher goes further than I dared to explore, I'd guess it stops at Alberta Bair. The tunnel also continues to the North-East, towards the hospital. I was told it's sealed a few hundred yards up that way though.

Laramie, Wyoming has similar, but not bricked up (15 years back). I ended up in long forgotten basements, packed full of antiques, there's even a couple old walk-in hotel safes. Rooms that hadn't been visited in 50 years, it appeared the building owners probably didn't even know of the spaces, as someone had sealed them off years ago. They end/start in the old train depot tunnels. There has got to be a gem or two like that under Billings somewhere.

i think that's it was stupid of them to pave over them. they are just now learning of the mistake and uncovering old brick from along time ago i think they need to reopen the passages i mean if they seal them off then it takes the magic out of the magic city right.i bet a lot of people dont know that the Lincoln center use to be a high school. and that Garfield was a awesome elementary and that they tore down orchard to build a new building and so many of the historical things of billings are despairing.Its so sad.

I'm just now hearing about these tunnels and it's mighty interesting. Do you know of any upcoming plans to open them and make them available to the public. If the city would charge for admittance, they could use the money to help preserve them and bring them up to safety code.

There is a home at about Lewis and 7th street. On that property is an entrance. It almost looks like a sewer hole, but it leads down into part of the tunnels. I can't remember the address exactly, it use to have a corn field in front, but they no longer keep the garden. Lots of trees, much older house.

do they mind people going in to the tunnels through their property?
