Most Popular Area Attractions

Elkhorn Mine

The Elkhorn Mountains of northern Montana have a rich past. In 1872, the mountains were once the location of the Elkhorn Mine, used to mine silver. Swiss immigrant Peter Wys was the first to discover the silver. The mine was built six years later by Aonton Holter.

During the heyday of mining, the mine produced more then $14 million of silver. By 1890, the silver was in high demand, from the passing of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act. The town was the home to 2,500 residents and included a school, church, stores, a hotel and saloons. In 1893, the historical Fraternity Hall was built for social gatherings.

It remains as one of the most well preserved buildings. It remained a viable mine and town until the 1970s. While traveling in Northern Montana cities like Helena, Great Falls and Butte make for a comfortable night's.
