About

Butte, Montana was once acknowledged world-wide as The Richest Hill on Earth because of its incomparable mineral wealth in gold, silver, and copper. By the turn of the 20th century, Butte was one of the most ethnically diverse settlements in the West and was the wellspring of the western labor movement.
The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives collections provide dynamic insights into the history of copper mining and the electrification of America, as well as essential information on a number of subjects in the American West, including the history of women and immigrant groups, mining technology, environmental history, and labor history.
