Elkhorn Ghost Town
We’re not sure if you’ll actually see any ghosts here but you will see prime examples of frontier architecture during the silver boom of the 1880s in this once-vibrant town that had its own mill and smelter producing $30,000 worth of ore per month. You’ll see remnants of the old mine, a shoemaker’s shop and a saloon. The cemetery provides a fascinating and somewhat eerie memory of those who lived here. Head south of Helena on I-15 to Boulder. Follow signs to Elkhorn State Park, which is approximately seven miles south of Boulder.
