This mansion is nicely done with lots of original to the house furniture. Knowledgable pleasant guide delivered in an entertaining way. The grounds are also awesome but spring time would be a better time of the year for the flowers.

We have been to the Moss Mansion on a few occasions and it never fails to delight. It is an interesting piece of history. The tour is good, questions answered, and not rushed. Nice way to spend an afternoon. The halloween tour was fun as well.

The tour guide was a pleasant and informative college kid. But the mansion was basically just a big old house. Like paying $10 to visit your grandma's. I suppose there is not much else in Billings to do.

I Love History and I Love Historic Homes, therefore while I was in Billings, Montana, a visit to the INCREDIBLE Moss Mansion was definitely on my TO DO LIST. The Moss Mansion is an elegant home without being too over the top. Time (1903) stands perfectly still at this historic gem. PB Moss was a force to be reckoned with.... More

As spring turns to Summer, the flora and fauna are currently absolutely gorgeous! The grounds alone are worth the trip to this one of a kind historic site!

Patrons have the opportunity to take a guided tour through the Moss Mansion built in1903. Upon approaching the home one should realize that the home cost over $103,000.00 dollars to build at a time when an average home cost $3,000.00 and the local hospital, built at the same time, cost under 1/2 that amount. Although much of the writing about... More

MOSS MANSION is an absolute gem in the heart of downtown Billings. Take a remarkable step back into time to the early 1900’s. This red-stone mansion was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh who created the original Waldorf Astoria and Plaza Hotels in New York City. Preston Boyd Moss had the home built in 1903 for his wife Mattie and their... More

I have been to a lot of beautiful old homes. What makes this one stand out is that so much of the original furnishings, artwork, wall coverings, curtains, etc., are still there. Tour guides are knowledgeable. I love beautiful old homes that were built in a time when things were built to last (they have an icebox from the 40s... More

Tucked away in the center of town is this jewel of a home. The interiors and fixtures are, in themselves, works of art. The house as a whole is a glimpse into the life and times of turn of the century entrepreneurs. My tour in late November was led by a fantastic knowledgeable hometown guide; 1:1 interaction was great. Probably... More
