In Beaverhead County, we have two types of ghost towns:
Well-Preserved Ghost Town – Bannack State Park - Bannack was First Territorial Capital of Montana and the first Montana gold strike!
Ghost Town Ruins – Coolidge in the Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest - Coolidge was a small town in 1919 created as a silver mining town. It was named after Calvin Coolidge, who was friends with the founder William R. Allen of the Boston-Montana Development Corporation. By 1923, the silver prices had plummeted and the whole operation was in receivership.
