The Montana struck an underwater tree in 1884 and was piloted ashore. The boat has been there ever since for the past 128 years.
The Montana isn't the only shipwreck visible along the Missouri. But no treasure hunting allowed. All of the shipwrecks on the Missouri belong to the state under federal law.
