Boothill Cemetery is a burial ground for two score residents of Coulson—a rough and ready cow town and forerunner of Billings—most of whom "cashed it in with their boots on." Tradition has it that the cemetery was started when one gent in a Coulson saloon called another a liar. Nearly all of those interred at Boothill met with violent deaths. The most famous person to be buried here is Muggins Taylor, the scout who carried the news of Custer's Last Stand to the world. The last burial at Boothill was in 1882. (www.billingsguide.com)
