Home to Montana’s state prison, Deer Lodge is one of Montana’s oldest towns. Now unused, the Old Territorial Prison with its four-tiered cell block, gothic facade and huge prison yard, remains a favorite location. Deer Lodge also houses one of the largest antique auto museums in the state. Remnants of old mining camps can still be visited a few miles from town. The original Grant-Kohrs Ranch, one of the 19th century’s biggest range ranches, still exists as a National Historic Site and a working ranch.
