We start our journey at the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is open seven days a week from ten in the morning to six at night during the summer. It is closed in the winter months, usually from the middle of October through the middle of May.
Inside the Visitor Center you will find a variety of books and other interpretive materials. There is also a video room with an assortment of videos to help you better understand Bannack and the surrounding area. Restrooms are located inside for your convenience. Cold drinks are also available.
The building that the Visitor Center is located in was once owned and occupied by early Bannack resident George French. Mr. French was also a carpenter and it is believed he was the one responsible for building Henry Plummer’s coffin.
