Located on the western banks of the Upper Missouri River, which served as the primary transportation access to the region before the establishment of rail lines throughout the region. Regular steamboat service began in the river in the 1830s and continued throughout the nineteenth century providing a way for goods and residents to access the growing town. In the years following the conclusion of the American Civil War, numerous groups of immigrants from across the United States and Eastern and Western Europe established neighborhoods and communities in the region based on cultural lines, many of which exist to this day.
Bellows Landing was established in the river by the Army Corps of Engineers, which also installed dry docks and boat repair areas during the 1870s. These landings supported supply ships for the US Army's frontier forts and, at the time, was considered the best landing in the area. One distinction for these landings was that they were safe to use year-round, even during the spring when ice was broken up to allow passage. The city was only officially incorporated two years before this panoramic map's publication, and the city began to become an important transportation hub and allowed for farmers and ranchers to get agricultural products to markets in Chicago and the Northeast.
