Visit These Fascinating Ruins In Montana For An Adventure Into The Past
In the late 1800s, the Hecla Consolidated Mining Company was based in Glendale, Montana. Since it was one of the top mines in the United States at the time, the town attracted people from all over and became a lively community. A few miles down the road from Glendale, charcoal was produced at the Canyon Creek Charcoal Kilns and used for the smelter within the town.
Today, Glendale and Canyon Creek Charcoal Kilns are well-known ruins from what was once a thriving miner district in Montana. Because they’re only about five miles from each other, plan to visit both of these sites when you set out on your adventure into Montana’s past.
