Garnet, Montana, now a ghost town, was established in the late 1890’s in the Garnet Range when new technology made the extraction of gold from ore easier. The small town became a boom town for a short time before the veins of gold all but disappeared by World War I. There were a couple of hotels and saloons in the town as well as a local general store that sold mining tools along with other goods. Saws, once new, hang on the wall of what was once a flourishing mercantile in the town.
