Just south of Boulder, off Hwy-69, is the "NOT QUITE A GHOST TOWN" of ELKHORN. Its quiet streets watch many visitors come to see the old buildings and artifacts from its boom time of the Late 1880's. Just off I-15 at exit 160 south of Boulder are the remote ghost towns of COMET and GRAY EAGLE. Each had an active mine for its support during their boom days. All around the towns of Boulder and Basin, (9 miles south of Boulder on I-15), are old log and rock buildings from a time when mineral mining was the wealth of the territory. Many of these buildings are still in use. Some have been renovated for more modern use and comfort.
South of Boulder on Hwy-69 is the BOULDER HOT SPRINGS, (the old Diamond S Ranchotel), with its natural hot water pools. It carries an atmosphere of a time during prohibition and the roaring 20's. It was once a hot spot for the politicians and well to do citizens around the Helena area.
East of Whitehall is the LEWIS AND CLARK CAVERN STATE PARK. Don't miss a visit while you are in the Boulder and Whitehall area.
About 18 miles North of Helena, just off I-15, is a breath taking boat tour through the "GATEWAY TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS", as named by Meriwether Lewis (of Lewis and Clark).
To the south, in the mining city of Butte are the "WORLD MUSEUM OF MINING" and "OUR LADY OF THE ROCKIES." Both are worth seeing while visiting the area. Also in Butte is the "COPPER KING MANSION," which is a National Historic Place. The mansion has been featured in National Geographic, New York Times, Los Angeles Examiner, San Francisco Chronicle, and Readers Digest.
