Gold West Country

Built on the sensational fortunes of the Gold Rush Era, Montana's southwest corner boasts riches that range from State Parks and Blue-Ribbon trout streams to museums and art galleries. From the restored gold camps of Bannack and Virginia City to the Mansions, architecture and historic tours of its early mining cities, southwestern Montana takes pride in its history. Other historic attractions include the Big Hole National Battlefield, site of an 1877 battle between the Nez Perce and the U.S. Cavalry, and the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site in Deer Lodge, which preserves the headquarters of one of Montana's largest cattle ranching empires.
