14th Annual Heritage Celebration
July 18, 2015

Celebrants at last year's Heritage Celebration

The Yellowstone Historic Center's 14th Annual Heritage Celebration was held on July 18, 2015 in the Union Pacific Dining Lodge in West Yellowstone. The theme for this year's event was "Stagecoaching through Yellowstone."

We thank the people who joined us for an evening of festivities and celebration. The event raised over $35,000 which will enable us to continue to provide the many programs and projects we do to tell the story of the heritage of travel to Yellowstone. We also thank the sponsors and donors listed below who contributed so mightily to our cause.

Plans are already underway for 2016's event which will be held on Saturday July 23. Check back here for updates!

Special Events

The Yellowstone Historic Center has offered several Special Events over the past few years, including the Museum Murder Mystery, the Spring Tea, and Pie on the Porch. These were held at the YHC Museum in the historic Union Pacific Depot.
