08.19.15 – Cottonwood City in Deer Lodge, Montana

11846591_889165267831831_2583002519265157605_nSunday afternoon I drove into town (Deer Lodge, Montana) to check out some things we didn’t see last week. Roy chose to stay home and nap! Being a small town most everything was closed on Sunday afternoon. However, the Cottonwood City was open! It’s a neat little replica of Deer Lodge in the old days. All of the buildings are furnished with items they used back then. A school house, post office, jail, chapel, gold miners house, regular western house were among the buildings I got to see.

Here are some pictures of this little town!

When looking at it close up it’s a bunch of little orange berries.
