Locations: Ghost Towns & Cemeteries
Southwest Montana, sometimes called Montana’s Goldwest Country, was largely settled by gold miners in the 19th century. The first major gold strike in the area occurred along Grasshopper Gulch and led to the establishment of Bannack, now one of Montana’s best preserved ghost towns. While Bannack and Virginia City (a living ghost town) are the best known in the region, there are a number of other ghost towns throughout Southwest Montana. If you are looking to feature a cemetery in your film production, there are a variety of historic and active cemeteries in picturesque Montana locations to choose from.
