1863 H. S. Gilbert Brewery - Virginia City Ghost Town
The H. S. Gilbert Brewery was the first brewery in Montana. This modern day photograph depicts how it probably looked over 150 years ago. It has changed very little since that bygone era.
The brewery first opened in Virginia City in 1863 and Henry Gilbert took over ownership a couple of years after. Gilbert married Margaret McMinn in 1860 and they had 15 children, one of whom, Valentine, took over the brewery upon her father's passing and ran it until it closed during prohibition.
I don't know if you believe in ghosts, but one appears to be in the window looking down at the wagon.
