The Treasure State boasts such a nickname for a good reason. This incredible landscape once beckoned to treasure hunters, and its rich landscape produced gold, silver, coal, and semi-precious stones like garnets. As mining became a pastime, once populated landscapes became ghost towns. Hiding in the Garnet Range is one of the quaintest abandoned cemeteries in Montana that dates back to the height of mining. Only a few headstones hint at its purpose, though the very road that rolls up to it may be paved on unmarked graves. If you find yourself in the area, this forgotten cemetery will captivate you with its enduring mystery.

There are several abandoned cemeteries in Montana, but Sand Park Cemetery is one of its most surprising. Though it has only five visible graves, it is well worth a visit.
