The Remnants Of This Abandoned Town In Montana Are Hauntingly Beautiful

Imagine living in Montana in 1895, when the land was wild and untamed and the mining boom was just beginning. Perhaps you would have been one of the first inhabitants of Garnet, the once-thriving community located about 30 miles east of Missoula. Although it was abandoned long ago, it remains one of our best-preserved ghost towns, and it’s still beautiful.
