This is the Oldest Bar in Montana
Have you ever been to this Montana landmark in Virginia City?
If you've ever been to Virginia City, Montana, you may have stopped to wet your whistle at the Bale of Hay Saloon. According to an article recently published by 247wallst.com, the Bale of Hay Saloon is the oldest in the state of Montana.
The bar was originally founded in 1863. That's pretty old considering Montana didn't officially become a state until 1889.
The Bale of Hay Saloon was once a brothel for Virginia City's mine workers, and now hosts an annual Brothel Days festival.
The saloon is only open from May until September.
Walking into the Bale of Hay Saloon will make you feel like you're walking back through time into the old west/ It features old furniture and fixtures, including a giant hand-carved mahogany bar.
