An entirely deserted ghost town is great for atmosphere, but not so great for steady photographs. I will admit to sticking close to the main street. You can walk around back and view even more buildings, but I didn't feel comfortable doing so. Also, I was confused as to whether the place was open or not. (It's technically not until Mid-May.) Some buildings were locked up tight and some had their doors wide open. That was not helping my nerves any either. No, I did not fall for the invitation and walk into those empty buildings. A) Not sure I was supposed to. B) Didn't know who had left the door open. Ghosts or humans? Either way, I wasn't about to satisfy my curiosity. I figured some things are better left alone.
|This is the masonic building / school house. The plaque above the door states that the Masonic hall is on the 2nd floor and the school is on the first.|
This is one of the more striking buildings in Bannack. Before it became the Meade Hotel, it was the courthouse. Apparently it is haunted, but I didn't spot anything.
