The area was well known for fine dude ranches such as the Elkhorn and depended widely upon tourist trade. Gallatin Gateway is located 12 miles SW of Bozeman on U.S. Highway 191.
Fully restored to its original 1920s splendor, the Gallatin Gateway Inn is among the finest historic inns in the Rocky Mountains.
