Billings - Sheraton Hotel
Every morning at around 2:30 one of the lifts calls the front desk, and when the person at the front desk answers the phone there is no one on the other line. The front desk clerk and the security guard have then looked in the elevator to find there is no one inside. Finally after this had been going on for several days the front desk clerk decided it would be best to call the elevator at 2:30, someone picked up the phone, and again there was no one on the end of the line and when they inspected it again there was no one inside.

Butte - Archives
Reports say that inside the old fire station, in the basement there have been over 200 seperate reports of ghost sightings since the archives were started, its not just a once in a while experience every time someone has gone into the basement, or into the far room, in this instance many people have seen a group of old firefighters playing a game of poker on the wall, along with a few other roaming spirits, experiences have ranged from fire alarms going off even with no power running to them, rolling cases slamming together all throughout the night, to books being hurled across the room. This haunting is definitely not to be taken lightly. Also one of the most peculiar events ever being reported happening more than once is a respectable elderly woman walked into the reading room, the police report states 'It felt like they walked into a warm pillow' but when she got into the room it was no longer the reading room, but had turned into a ball room filled with fire fighters in formal wear. When the police arrived one of them said the same thing that 'it was like walking into a warm pillow' and sure enough there was a ballroom.

Colstrip - Power plant
This power plant produces massive amounts of electrical energy in which all kinds of spirits have been seen. They have usually been seen at night around the spider web like power lines and transistors. Usually when the air is full of static electricity you can just wait and see these shadow like figures going from transistor to transistor for some unknown reason. The most common things that have been reported are rambling voices talking next to a person or just passing them asthough it was a real person. Sometimes peoples belongings have disappeared in a place where they are alone onlt to be found in a completely wrong place, for example, another part of the plant just sitting in plain site. The men that work there have become so used to these encounters that it has become something they just accept that will happen once in a while.
Deer Lodge - Old Montana Prison
The last prisoners to reside here were taken to a new prison in 1979-1980. The montana old prison had been in use through the 1800's for many brutal outlaws of the time. The gallows room has many a strange sound and a cold presence. The hole, that consists of a small sub-chambered room that is intensely cold and houses four or five small cells, one in particular, first one on the left, is very cold and also has a foul odor, with an evil threatening presence, and people have been known to be pushed back up the stairs trying to leave the room as though to keep them going much faster than they would choose to walk.
Garnet - Garnet Ghost Town
There are reports of a full 'ghost town' in the hills of Montana that was originally created as a mining town. After a fire caught hold of the hotel there, many people started to move out. The houses and buildings have been wonderfully preserved and the original hotel that caught fire still stands and has little fire damage. Spirits have been felt all over this town, but especially in the hotel, on the second floor. Witnesses say if you go up the stairs, walk straight towards the wall without turning, and then look to your left, the open door there is where one of the spirits resides. Beware though, because apparently this spirit is not nice, although there have not been any solid reports to say that it has harmed anyone.

Once she got back into her car and started to drive away, she looked in the rear view mirror and saw him walking along the road again.
Great Falls - The Lobby Bar
Reportedly the three floors above this old bar are home to twelve different spirits or possibly more. This is a very old building, and as such has lots of history.

It is said to be very eerie up there, and supposedly it looks like something out of a horror movie.
Harlowton - Harlowton Hotel
The old man that used to own this hotel and restaurant used to sit on one of the top floors and look out from a window while sitting in his rocking chair at the Musselshell River. After he passed away they put the chair in a storage closet, but almost every time it would end up back at the window, even when they had locked the door. Maids have reported that when they are cleaning, someone or something has pulled at their hair playfully also they have heard someone walking in the hall.
Helena - Carroll College
Legend tells that a priest committed suicide by jumping from the fourth floor bathroom window of Saint Charles Hall, which is one of the dormitories on the campus. Not long after the suicide, one of the varsity basketball players, who lived on that floor, slipped and cracked his head open in the same bathroom. Sadly, he died from the injury. The school then closed the bathroom. Years later, there were reports of blood flowing from the sink in that bathroom, even though the pipes were disconnected from the wall. The bathroom still remains locked to this day.

Libby - Sportsman’s RV Park
During the spring, when thunderstorms are rumbling overhead, and lightning flashes lighting up the dark midnight sky, a shadow of a figure looking down, wearing what looks like a hooded poncho that is blowing, and waving in the wind, can be seen drifting or floating with no feet around the RV Park. Before the RV Park was built, in the late 1960s with anticipation, and the start of construction on the Libby Dam, this place was called the Riverside Inn. It was a steak house, petrol station, mobile home park, and mobile motel (house of ill repute). Construction workers and others gathered here after work to let loose, and do whatever they plaesed. It is said that vagrants, and squatters called the Riverside Inn home. They camped in the woods behind the Inn with hopes of landing a job on the Dam. A few years after the Libby Dam was completed, the Riverside Inn burned down, and was never rebuilt. No one knows what happened to the people who never managed to get a job, how they survived with little or no food, also how they dealt with the harsh winter weather in Montana. Many believe that this could be the spirit of one of those vagrants, still hoping for a chance to get a job working on the dam.
