On 8-16-08 Denny went to the BLM center to see a presentation by Arch Ellwein who was portraying steamboat captain Grant Marsh.  Pictures were taken in the replica of the Far West wheelhouse.  Captain Marsh brought the Far West to Montana in 1875 and 1876

                                                          

We took a trip through South Western Montana in June and stopped at Bannack State Park. Bannack is a ghost town and was the territorial capitol before Montana became a state. Bannack was the site of gold mining operations from the 1800s to the 1940s. The State Fish, Wildlife, and Parks Agency has not restored anything but they keep good roofs on the buildings and keep glass in the windows so the buildings will last for many more years. The Hotel Meade was last used in 1940.The Masonic building had a school on the first floor and the lodge hall on the second. Note the stairs to the second floor on the outside. Bannack is about 20 miles from interstate 15 near Dillon,MT.
