About Ellen Baumler

I'm an interpretive historian at the Montana Historical Society and host of the show "History on the Go" on Cherry Creek Radio. In my spare time, I've made a hobby out of investigating the history behind Montana's ghosts and haunted places. My writing includes seven books and numerous magazine articles that tell the most funny, bizzare, and interesting stories from my research into Montana history.
