Friday Photo: Bannack, Montana

Montana Historical Society Photograph Archives, 940-695
Did you hear about the flash flood that swept through Bannack in July? Today's photo shows the town as it was circa 1900, looking west. The dredge on the left was launched in 1895. Click the photo for a bigger version.

P.S. A beautiful photographic tribute to Bannack
P.P.S. The Bannack Association has posted lots of photos of the cleanup, plus historic photos.
P.P.P.S. Do you think Bannack's Meade Hotel is haunted?

  1. We were there last year and I felt so bad when I heard of the flood. But I think (hope) they are recovering from it.
