"Wallace" Wallace by 10eke

Wallace Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 66 photos

Wallace was destined to be yet another abandoned mining town. The town barely survived the big forest fire of 1910. However this situation appears to have preserved the town, because of its typical unchanged look the entire downtown area is listed on the US National Historic Register. To avoid having to tear down the railroad station building to make way for the I-90, it was moved by 200 feet. Wallace is also getting attention from the movie industry, it was the location for Heaven's Gate and Dante's Peak. Heaven and hell? Despite the bad weather it felt more like heaven to us, green hills and friendly folks.

    Definitly a great place, the food is great as well. Also, they have a resident ghost named Maggie, who used to work and live there in the late 1800's. Eating there is a great way to relax, eat delicious food, and get in touch with history.
