The Mining Town In Montana Where Time Stands Still

Given Montana’s rich mining history, it comes as no surprise that the Treasure State is still packed with charming mining towns that have a ton of character. But there’s one little city, in particular, that seems frozen in time – in the best way. When you visit Red Lodge, you might find that you walk a little more slowly, check your phone less often, talk to more strangers, and enjoy being present in the moment. That’s no accident – this spot has a way of taking us back to the good old days.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Of course, Red Lodge has seen its share of changes over the years, but the locals do a great job of preserving its history and timeless small-town charm.

If you love these small towns that are full of nostalgia, you’ll also want to check out the glorified ghost town of Pony.
