This 1860s mining town is said to be the home of many spirits. The abandoned town 40 miles outside of Missoula was named after garnets, the first stone mined here, although gold became the real draw. Disembodied voices have been heard here, and several apparitions have been seen. The many ghosts reputed to reside here include not only gold miners, but also a woman who is said to have been executed for murder here. As Garnet was famous for its 13 saloons, loud music has also been heard at times.
