Ghost Tales from Virginia City, Butte, and Helena

Created: Monday, May 18, 1908

Ghost Tales from Virginia City, Butte, and Helena
by Ellen Baumler

If ghosts are the restless spirits of those who died violently or in a state of unreadiness, then Montana's violent frontier history explains the richness and depth of these haunting stories. This wonderful collection—based on oral testimony, diaries, journals, and newspaper accounts—presents an eerie history of the state's legendary mining towns. In addition to their ghoulish intrigue, these stories combine to provide new perspectives and a great appreciation for Montana's past.
