If you have ever wondered what it would be like to live in Montana during the gold rush, this weekend will be a good time to bring your imagination to life at Bannack State Park.
The park will be holding the second annual Living History event starting today September 26, through Sunday September 29. Bannack’s Living History Program uses exhibits and artifacts to help you experience what it was like to live where the Montana Gold Rush began. See an 1862 placer mining camp, blacksmithing, general store, school house, saloon, boarding house, butcher shop, Sunday service in the old church and more historically accurate depictions of life in the early years of Bannack. Discover what the old west was really like!
The activities will run from 9am until 5pm Thursday through Saturday and 9 to 2 Sunday. Relive the excitement of the Gold Rush era in Montana. This four day event will depict the first 20 years of Bannack’s history.
This event is free to Montana residents. Out of state vehicles pay a $5.00 park entrance fee. For more information and to schedule a school visit please call the park at 406-834-3413. You can also find more information www.Bannack.org
