Photographer's Note

Bannack was established in 1862 when gold was discovered in nearby Grasshopper Creek and was the first state capital of Montana. Eventually the gold played out, the capital moved and the town was gradually deserted. Now established as a state park to perserve this bit of history. The buildings have not been restored, however measures are taken to preserve them. Bannack, in it's day was a bustling wild west town and had quite a reputation for it's road agents, gunfights and vigilantis. Today it as quiet and peaceful as any town you can find and littered with artifact that one can touch (but look out for splinters).
