Zortman

This quirky, but historic little mining town is nestled in the Little Rockies just above Landusky. One of the favorite activities for visitors here is panning for gold. Candy and John Kalal, the proprietors of the Zortman Garage and Motel will give you guidance on this fun and sometimes rewarding activity. 

This little town sits in the heart of some of the more colorful history of Montana. Lewis and Clark named this range in 1805. Gold mining arrived in 1884. Kid Curry and his Wild Bunch homesteaded nearby and left a number of graves with stories to tell behind them. As you drive into Zortman, you will see the old jail still standing.
