  • This place is amazing to explore, it's so interesting to step into the old homes and imagine how they lived.  more »
  • We went on a pleasant spring day. Park ranger had a lot of information then we wandered though the town and the buildings. We also had a special treat of hearing one of the local ladies play the piano...  more »
  • This was our first visit to Banack State Park and had no idea what to expect. What a pleasant surprise to find an original mining town and not in some commercial/touristy setting. Walking the streets ...  more »

  • Worth the drive. It was a fun experience actually being allowed to go into historic buildings for once. I brought my dog and she had a great time. It was a windy day so the slamming doors was a little unnerving at times.
  • We walked the old gold mining town of Bannack and was in awe of how well preserved the State of Montana has kept it. The street housed all the old homes, motels, stores, etc,. I was intrigued by the gunslingers who made the town unsafe but gave it a colorful history. The sheriff Herry Plummer who became one of the murdering thiefs was later hanged by one of the gallows he had built. His story goes on and is tacked up on the wall in the bar where the gang hid out and made plans to rob the next stagecoach coming in to town. We toured a lot of the town and the hotel that was formerly the courthouse was really large with a built in safe and kitchen items still intact. The jail seemed like it could still keep a criminal locked up. The Christian Church still had most of the pews bolted down and it seemed that it could still hold a sermon .
  • Ghost town in super condition. Great historical records kept
  • I love how well preserved, yet un-touched this place seems. This is an awesome place to explore with lots of history.
  • This is one of our favorite stake parks. The preservation of this town site it spot on. We have used the Mason's Lodge for our meetings. It was truly an experience to be connected to an ancient lodge in an ancient town.
