The spectacular beauty of the Yellowstone River Valley and National Park is like no place else on earth. Here at the north entrance to the Park, the original gateway dedicated by Teddy Roosevelt in 1903, lies the historic town of Gardiner. Founded in 1883 when the Northern Pacific Railway extended a line to the new Park, Gardiner was then described by a traveling reporter as “… a picturesque burb of 200 hardy souls, with 6 restaurants, 1 billiard hall, 2 dance halls, 4 houses of ill-fame, 1 milkman and 21 saloons – the local favorite being Dr. Tippie’s, a neat and orderly establishment devoted to ameliorating the physical ills of mankind by dispensing invigorating liquors and soothing cigars. “
Today Gardiner remains a charming small town on the bank of the Yellowstone River, and the gateway to Yellowstone National Park, the world’s premier national park.
