Garnet - A Montana Ghost Town in HD - near Missoula, Montana MT
High in the mountains of western Montana you will find a REAL ghost town, Garnet, one of Montana’s best preserved and least visited. Garnet was started in 1895 when gold was discovered.
The town thrived with over 1,200 miners and their families. Garnet had four hotels, four stores, two barbershops, a butcher shop, a doctor’s office, laundry facilities and thirteen saloons. It even had stagecoach service!
After a few years the gold ran out and so did the population. It dwindled down to 150 people by 1905. In 1912 a fire wiped out half of the commercial buildings and was never rebuilt.
What you see today are efforts of stabilization, preservation and restoration from many volunteers who are dedicated to help preserve Montana’s rich mining history. Congratulations to each and every one of you!
