Paramount+‘s Yellowstone prequel 1883 whisks modern viewers back to the rugged American Wild West of the 19th century.

As part of Taylor Sheridan’s growing Yellowstone universe, the series explores how the Dutton family first acquired the largest ranch in Montana.

Margaret and James Dutton (real-life couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw) lead their family on a perilous journey from Texas to Montana, resulting in both a retelling of Western expansion and plenty of exciting drama.

So did Paramount+’s 1883 really shoot in the former Wild West? Was this western adventure brought to life on Hollywood sound stages? Here’s everything to know about where Paramount+’s 1883 was filmed.

Like its parent show, Yellowstone, 1883 was mainly filmed in Texas and Montana. Production for the prequel series is based out of Weatherford, Texas — more specifically, Bosque Ranch Headquarters, which serves as the show’s filming headquarters.

1883 was also shot in other areas across the Lone Star State. Other filming locations include Fort Worth, Texas’ Forth Worth Stockyards district, Granbury, Texas’ Farina’s Winery & Cafe (which stood in for an old-school salon), and Amarillo, Texas’ 6666 Ranch.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Yellowstone show if the Duttons didn’t cause a ruckus in Montana. A significant portion of 1883‘s first season was also filmed in Montana’s Park County, which just so happens to sit near Yellowstone National Park itself.

So there you have it! 1883 relied on the real-life west to bring the latest chapter of the Dutton family saga to life.
