Originally constructed as a hotel between
1908-1911 during Livingston’s heyday as the first gateway to
Yellowstone, this historic building is one of the sturdiest structures
in the city. After some fifteen years of disuse, it underwent a
fairly serious renovation in 1998-2000. It’s home to
approximately fifteen residents (and generally cool and interesting
people). We hope you
find the following info
useful. It is, however, provisional

beautiful place -- you’re a few minutes from the river and Sacajawea
Park, a few miles from a federal interstate, and a few minutes' drive
from the entrance to the mountainous Paradise Valley. The city, a
fly-fishing mecca, is part of the original Lewis & Clark trail
(William Clark's party passed through in July 1806), and Calamity Jane
lived here for close to twenty years. Livingston came into
being by the design of the historic Northern Pacific Railroad, which it
served as a Central Division headquarters and the transit point for
visitors to Yellowstone Park beginning in the early 1880s. The
area offers hiking, skiing, rafting, art galleries, museums, and
more. It enjoys the historic character of a small town, with a
major university city and airport approximately a half-hour's drive to
the west. The Grabow Condominiums let you enjoy this in a
beautiful residence right in the heart of town.
The Grabow is a three-story structure of mixed
brick tones in Livingston's historic downtown district. It
services three quiet businesses on the sides of its ground floor; its
central door welcomes residents to a spacious and welcoming lobby that
has hosted everthing from thanksgiving dinners to ballet board
meetings. The grand staircase leads residents to the
second and third floors, which continue the lobby's birds'-eye maple
flooring and dark-finish trim. Furniture sets popular for
friendly chats center each upper floor, with plants and a window,
individual unit doors, and an eastward fire escape. A side yard available to all
building occupants is a shaded place to enjoy a grilled dinner or a
summer chat at a table. Pets may be accommodated conditionally
services include cable TV, high-speed internet, and conventional
amenities, serviced by single-pipe gas-fired steam heating. The building is just half a block from a
half a block from a fitness center, one block off Main Street, two from
Post Office, one from the
City/County building, and three from laundry. The building is non-smoking, with an
expectation of quiet and decorum.
Units on each floor are largely unique in
character. Most are one-bedroom spaces, with a few studios
also. For a list of units presently available, please reach us
