“Ghostly” Bannack

I hate “ghost hunter” TV shows. Don’t believe in ghosts, supernatural stuff, paranormal activity, etc.

BUT…I love love love Montana, so I have endured sitting through a few of the ghosty shows when they visited Montana. I don’t watch for the “ghosts” – I watch for the Montana history and scenery.

I watched “Haunted Collector” when the crew visited the old Montana State Prison. Hell, I even watched “The Dead Files” (ack) when it featured Paris Gibson’s house right here in Great Falls.

The most recent was just a few days ago, when the Travel Channel series “Ghost Hunters” aired an episode filmed in Bannack down in southwest Montana.

Show Description: Zak, Nick and Aaron head to the desolate former mining town of Bannack, MT, riddled with paranormal activity. Before heading into the large-scale lockdown, the guys witness strange activity in broad daylight.

The ghost-hunters were full of hype and “WHAT WAS THAT?!” exclamations and other such nonsense, but the episode was still neat because they talked about some of Bannack’s very unique history – vigilantes, gold rush, Henry Plummer, etc.

  1. Bannack is great! If you go on the weekend during the summer vacation months they usually have a couple people dressed up in period specific clothes that give background information about the building that you are in. They also have demonstrations. The one I saw was a live rattlesnake handler.
