History

Worden is located on land designated in 1868 as part of the Crow Indian Reservation. When the Northern Pacific Railroad was surveyed and built in the early 1880s, a station called "Clermont" was supposedly built 21 miles from Billings, just across the tracks from present-day Worden.

The town of Worden was mapped out in 1907 as part of the Huntley Project. Irrigation transformed the area into an agricultural district and attracted immigrants. The town had a German Congregational church and a Methodist church. A newspaper, The Yellowstone County News, was based here.
