One of Montana’s best preserved ghost towns was severely damaged from a flood earlier this summer. The flood damaged 80 percent of the park’s 60 historic buildings. Monday, all except two buildings were once again open to visitors.
The price tag for the park’s cleanup likely will come in between $2 million and $4 million, said Brett Dahl, administrator of the state’s risk management and tort defense. Most of the costs will be covered by insurance. Bannack State Park is a National Historic Landmark and Montana’s first territorial capital. It is the site of Montana’s first major gold discovery in 1862. Bannack became a state park in 1954. In 2012, more than 32,900 people visited this state park.
