Garnet is a historic Montana mining town located in Granite County inwest central Montana, sitting high up at an elevation of almost 6,000 feet, surrounded by magnificent mountains and ancient forests. It dates to 1860 and was built on the garnet lode. The whole area was rich in gold and in 1898, almost 1,000 people lived in it.

The town was abandoned about 20 years later when there was no more gold. About 30 buildings have been well preserved, such asthe J.R. Wells Hotel, Kelly's Bar, Dahl's Saloon and the F.A. Davey's Store. There is a Visitor Center with books, cards and memorabilia, a number of interpretive signs and self-guided trails. The town is open year around.

9.A Carousel for Missoula

A Carousel for Missoula

When people want something very much, and get together to do it, magic happens. In 1991, the Missoula City Council decided to provide the Missoula community with something new for good, old-fashioned fun. Local cabinet-maker Chuck Kaparich, who had a dream of building a carousel, promised to make one if the city would find a place for it. In May of 1995, with help of thousands of volunteers who donatedmore than 100,000 hours of their time, some from as far as Canada, the carousel was completed.

There were 38 beautiful ponies, two chariots, 14 gargoyles with gargoyle frames, mirror frames and the biggest band organ in the States, all tucked in a jewel box of a building. They did it again in 2001, when more than 4,000 volunteers, justifiably proud of what they have created, created Dragon Hollow Play Area just next to the Carousel, turning a green field into a magical kingdom that enjoyed by kids and parents alike.
