Billings, Mont.

Parmly Billings, the son of Frederick and Julia (Parmly) Billings [Eleazer, Eleazer, Jehiel, Stephen, Stephen, John, John] died about three years after arriving in Billings, Mont., which was named for his father. The grief-stricken family built the Romanesque sandstone library in his honor in 1901. It now houses the Western Heritage Center regional museum at 2822 Montana Ave.

That library was replaced by the building at right for several decades. It was demolished to make way for a parking lot after construction of the present-day Billings Public Library, below, was completed.

The 66,000-square-foot facility opened Jan. 6, 2014, without "Parmly" in its name.
