Montana Big Sky Country has 8 classified ghost towns and one of the more easily recognized ghost towns is Elkhorn located east of Boulder in the Elkhorn Mountains. For a list of Montana Ghost Towns [click here]. For a more complete list of historic mining towns and ghost towns [click here].
The building in the photo to the right hasn’t much life left in it. Like a few other buildings in Elkhorn it won’t be long and there will be nothing left to see but a marker such as the one below for a building that is long gone.
One can only wonder how long this car has sat at this site. What history lesson it could give if only it could talk? The three legged local resident pictured below was plenty vocal but he didn’t have much history to add about the car or any of the rest of the town.
