Historic Crail Ranch is an original homestead ranch in Gallatin County Montana dating to 1902. The main cabin, built by the original homestead family and occupied as a working ranch until 1970, is a two-story log structure with many unique structural elements. Many historic documents and artifacts pertaining to the Ranch are housed on site and available to public viewing.
For more than 110 years, the Crail Ranch buildings have been central to the history of Big Sky, Montana. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, they stand as a lasting reminder of the sturdy people of the homestead era in Gallatin County.
The Crail Ranch is now part of a homestead museum operated by the Historic Crail Ranch Conservators. The historic buildings are open to visitors for free guided tours on weekends during July and August. An informative display on area history is open year-round in the Big Sky Visitor’s Center.
