Billings “Burger Dive” Discovers Haunted Past

When Brad Halsten opened up the Burger Dive in downtown Billings a few years ago, he noticed some strange things.  After paranormal experts confirmed his suspicions, he investigated the history of the building on 27th Street.  Turns out, the Burger Dive now occupies the site of the first funeral home in Billings.

Many decades ago, Smith Funeral Chapels relocated to their current home on 925 S. 27th Street and expanded their business to serve Red Lodge, Laurel and Columbus.  But the first Smith Funeral Chapel opened for business in 1896 in the very building that now houses one of the most popular restaurants in Billings.

Halsten is convinced that some of the Smith family’s “guests” are still visiting the site.

“When we first moved in, we were told that the building was a print shop for decades.  After that shop closed, a restaurant took over the building.  We always knew it was haunted, but now we know why,” Halsten said.

Next time you’re having lunch downtown at the Burger Dive, be careful.  Some of the guests claim the burgers are “to die for”.
