The Yogo Inn is named after the Yogo sapphire which is mined in central Montana outside nearby Utica. These unique and rare sapphires were discovered in 1894 by prospectors panning for gold in a nearly vertical strip of rock averaging eight feet in width and extending a distance of 5 miles. Yogo sapphires are exceptional stones of superb quality and notable cornflower blue color which is natural and not color enhanced.
The Yogo Inn Hotel and Convention Center was formerly the site of the Milwaukee Road Train Depot completed in 1913. The original train depot currently contains our commercial kitchen formerly known as “The Beanery,” the waiting room became our Sapphire Ballrooms and the train conductor accommodations are our newly renovated Premier King Guestrooms.
In 1962 the newly built Yogo Inn Motor Hotel with 60 rooms opened and with construction in 1983 it reached its current configuration of 123 rooms and the addition of the famous Centermark Courtyard which identifies the exact center of the state of Montana. During construction, several items were excavated from the Centermark location that dated back to the early 1900’s. These artifacts can currently be viewed in the Yogo Inn lobby.
