Garnet Ghost Town, Mt.

In the 1860s gold was discovered in the Garnet Mountains.  And, as the rush to "capitalize" on the dream of instant wealth, the town of Garnet was born.  Today there are 22 buildings still standing in the Garnet Mountains.  Visitors can walk through the well preserved town  and into many of the long deserted buildings... Interestingly, one of the towns buildings, on the outskirts of the town is still occupied!  If you're ever in the Missoula area, the Garnet Ghost Town is about an hour away on a beautiful drive into the Garnet Mountains...
