Beyond the Unabomber: Lincoln, Montana looks back after 20 years

Lincoln, Montana is a quirky little town. Located halfway between Great Falls and Missoula on Highway 200. Community members are dedicated to their town, although it's not without it's share of hardship.

Regardless of how much the town has to offer or how hard the people there work to make it a great place to live, Lincoln is known by many across the nation only as the home of the Unabomber.

The Unabomber, whose real name is Ted Kaczynski, killed three people and injured 23 through the homemade bombs he sent across the country. During that two decade period from the 1970s-1990s, Ted lived in a small cabin off Stemple Pass Road in Lincoln. But now, in the exact same location, a movie production crew has moved in to recreate not only Ted’s story, but Lincoln’s story. 

Moving into 2019, nearly 23 years since Ted’s arrest, the new movie once again raises the question for Lincoln residents: will they ever be able to move beyond the Unabomber?
