Our Story

The Madison Crossing Building was the first West Yellowstone School built in 1918. The large area that houses the Homeroom furniture store was the school gymnasium, built in 1954. The floor and ceiling beams are original. The two-story water fountain and mezzanine were added in 1993. The Madison Crossing Lounge is located in the former 1st grade classroom as long time locals laughingly point out. This restaurant and building is built on the memories that were made in it, and we hope to help you form those same kinds of memories with the quality and service provided. We look forward to seeing you at The Madison Crossing Lounge.
