The Grand Hotel in Big Timber, Montana, located at 139 McLeod, was built in 1890. Its building was financed by Jacob Halverson, a Sweet Grass County sheep rancher.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1] It was deemed significant "as an important center for social and commercial activity in Big Timber", a wool exporting community. A fire in 1908 destroyed most businesses along McLeod Street but not the Grand Hotel.[2]
