This Is The Oldest Place You Can Possibly Go In Montana And Its History Will Fascinate You

Montana is currently celebrating its 129th birthday (11/8/1889), and it’s safe to say our state looks drastically different than it once did. That being said, some of our oldest establishments are still in business, including a charming bar that is older than Montana itself. The next time you check out the charming Virginia City, make sure to stop by the Bale of Hay Saloon.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Once you’ve had a drink at Montana’s oldest saloon, you can enjoy a meal at the oldest operating restaurant in the state.
