About the Town of Shepherd Montana:

Shepherd is a census-designated place (CDP) in Yellowstone County, Montana, United States. The population was 193 at the 2000 census. Shepherd is a Billings suburb located to the northeast and west of the Huntley Project Irrigation District. The unincorporated town was named after R.E. Shepherd, a prominent early settler and owner of the Billings Land and Irrigation Company and the Merchants National Bank.

Amazingly enough, Shepherd offers recreational activities provided by the nearby Yellowstone river and valley. Residents and visitors can enjoy activities like hiking, fishing, boating and swimming. Well-maintained parks provide a family-friendly atmosphere, perfect for picnicking and walking. People looking for quality life will surely find it herein Shepherd.

Homesteaders arrived in the Shepherd vicinity after the creation of the Billings Bench Water Association canal in 1905. This 65-mile canal brought Dutch, German, and Scandinavian farmers who took this cattle range and turned it into farmland. However, when the grasshoppers devoured the sugar beet crop in 1936, most of the farmers picked up their stakes and moved on. Today, Shepherd is a suburb of Billings which is only 16 miles East of Billings. If looking for more info about the area and history of Shepherd, the local Huntley Project Museum has information about it.
