Montana: Elkhorn historic frontier buildings
12 images Created 24 Jun 2011
Two original buildings, outstanding examples of American frontier architecture, are preserved and open to the public as Elkhorn State Park, Montana, USA. The silver, gold and lead mines at Elkhorn began booming in 1875, then declined in 1892 as silver prices dropped. A few miners still work the Elkhorn mines and live in private homes nearby within Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. Directions: Take Interstate 15 to Boulder exit, go 7 miles south on Montana 69, then 11 miles north on county graveled road.
