Most People Have Long Forgotten About This Vacant Ghost Town In Rural Montana

There’s no denying that Montana has some amazingly well-preserved (and frequently visited) ghost towns, like Bannack State Park and Garnet. But we’ve also got quite a few abandoned towns from our state’s early mining and railroad days that remain under the radar, with buildings slowly eroding. Coolidge Ghost Town is one of those places.

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:

Coolidge Ghost Town is a great place to spend an afternoon exploring. But if you’d rather enjoy a livelier ghost town experience, add a visit to Virginia City to your summer plans.
