Montana may be one of the least populous states in the country, but its natural wonders attract millions of tourists a year to places like Yellowstone, Glacier National Park and the Little Bighorn. Life here has never been for the weak of heart with major industries including ranching, mining, timber, oil and gas. While some things have changed since the Wild West days here, others things haven’t, including the spirits of early residents unable to move on.
There are plenty of haunted places in Big Sky Country, each with their own unique backstories. An old frontier prison is still stalked by the inmates of the past while a national park hotel has some tourists that never check out. The spirits of native warriors still cry out from where they were slaughtered and several ghost towns more than live up to the moniker. Whether in the rubble of a mining boomtown or the mansion of a prominent millionaire, you might not be as alone as you think in Montana.
