In the western portion of Montana sits Garnet, an abandoned mining town that’s garnered a reputation for being among the most haunted in the state. Settled in the 1890s to house those working in the nearby mines, it was abandoned in the early 20th century. The site has since been turned into a tourist attraction, hosting thousands of tourists each year. However, none stay very long, due to the supernatural phenomena.
