Searching for ghosts in Montana? You won’t have to look far. From a former brothel to a lonely hiking trail, here are seven places to find spirits in Big Sky Country.
Dumas Brothel – Butte
For nearly 100 years, the women of the Dumas Brothel served Butte’s hard-working miners. Though the bordello closed its doors in 1982, the property’s current owners believe at least a few working women remain. Eerie events include falling objects, disembodied voices, and beds that shake. A number of paranormal investigation teams have visited Dumas and reported strange things like lost time and mysterious scratches.
Bear Canyon Campground – Bozeman
Legend has it a little girl in a white dress haunts this scenic campground and surrounding trails. But the child is no harmless spirit. She reportedly tries to lure women deep into the woods and away from others. What the ghost girl wants with the women is anyone’s guess, but so far, no one appears to have been led astray.
Little Bighorn Battlefield – Crow Agency
In 1876, the Battle of the Little Bighorn, or Custer’s Last Stand, raged in southeastern Montana, killing nearly 300 men and wounding dozens more. Now, ghosts reportedly walk the historic site. Legend has it soldiers and warriors creep across the battlefield at night when the moon is bright and visitors have gone home for the evening.
