Bannack State Park is open for the first time in months.
In July a flash flood ripped through Bannack State Park and Monday for the first time in almost two months, the historic area opened its doors.
Governor Steve Bullock was one of the landmark's first visitors as he toured the area to see how far it has come since the disaster.
"Bannack has really stood the test of time for 150 years, and even the flash flood couldn't take that away," said Governor Bullock. "In part it's also the spirit of individuals coming together, and in Montana when there are challenges we come together as friends, as neighbors to get things done."
Although the park is open, construction continues on structures like the Assay Building.
Otherwise, the historic ghost town is finishing up the clean-up process.
When crews cleared the mud they found almost 3,000 new artifacts.
"For the most part it was old cans and bottles, but we did find an Opium pipe," said Tom Lowe, park supervisor. "That was interesting. We found some old dumps that were uncovered. So there was a lot of wealth and historic artifacts in those."
Insurance covered repairs to most of the damage to the park.
A landmark that Governor Bullock says is a staple in Montana's history.
"Sometimes it takes a tragedy to hear people from not only around the state, but from all around the country asking about Bannack, asking about how things are, and showing their concerns to make sure this valuable, critical piece of Montana history is sustained and continues," Governor Bullock said.
Scheduled events will still take place at Bannack State Park, including the "Living History" event at the end of the month.
