Garnet Ghost Town

Garnet

Garnet, Montana is a ghost town found near a golden deposit that was discovered here in 1862. Construction of railroad through the area greatly increased profitability of golden extraction. Two boom- bust cycles occurred in Garnet in 1883-93 and 1898-1904 with the highest number of residents reaching 3000. In 1912 declining Garnet was hit by a great fire. Whatever survived the flames were carefully preserved by Bureau of Land Management.
