An old truck continues to sit and rust in Bannack, Montana. As the ores declined, so did the town and by 1890, only 400 residents remained. However, the town remained populated enough to continue to support a post office until 1938. The school closed in the early 1950s and the last residents left in the 1970s. Today, Bannack is a preserved Montana State Park and a National Historic Landmark with some 60 remaining buildings. Photo by Kathy Weiser-Alexander.
