Interestingly enough, Boulder, Montana is not just a place for locals.  It’s been a draw for people across Montana and around the world.  There are 3 main reasons why Boulder has been a destination that has drawn tourists, Montanans, and people from across the oceans; the radon mines, the hot springs, and the state schools for the deaf, blind and developmentally impaired.

You might say that Boulder was made for an ulterior reason:  to bring rest, health and life to the weak, weary, and diseased.  Originally, it was a trade center for mining, agriculture, and more.

In this Episode, you’ll learn some history, you’ll learn about one of our favorite ghost towns, and you’ll learn why this area makes such a great road trip!
