About Rank's
150 YEARS AGO a horse and buckboard saw you to town, your word meant everything, and the world was still understandable and full of promise. Step back in time by surrounding yourself with old west frontier and Victorian clothing that'll make you feel like you've left the modern world behind.

In 1864, Ranks Mercantile, in Virginia City, Montana, sold everything needed to outfit cowboys, miners, respectable (and a few not so respectable) women, and would-be soldiers off to fight in the Civil War. Thankfully, the shelves haven't changed all that much over the last century or two.

Today, in it's original location, the oldest operating store in Montana sells the same styles Calamity Jane saw while shopping, if she wasn't distracted by vigilantes hanging road agents out the back of the store.

To truly get the feel of the old west frontier, slip into our authentic 19th century clothing; the same clothing we sold new in 1864.

Jack Slade was a successful freighter in Virginia City and an infamous drunk. In March of 1864 he had been on a bender for several days, riding his horse into businesses, shooting his pistol, scaring women & children. When he & friend Bill Fairweather stirred up one of the local brothels by breaking furniture & harassing the girls, that was the last straw for Madam Moll Featherlegs and she pressed charges. A few days later while on the same drinking binge Slade was arrested inside Rank’s Mercantile and hanged from the post out back by the Vigilantes. The arrest, trial & lynching took place in less than 1 hour.
