City Background and History

Butte-Silver Bow, colloquially still known as just Butte, is the fifth largest city in Montana with a population of just under 35,000. Originally known as Butte, and the county seat of Silver Bow County, the two formally consolidated in 1977, giving the awkward sounding name that it officially bears today. The city was actually one of the largest cities west of the Mississippi River for forty years after its founding as a mining town in the late 19th century. Though the population peaked at 60,000 at the height of copper mining in the 1920s, Butte has transitioned into a modern city. Aggressive investing and reinvestment programs have led to most of these areas being turned into open green spaces, museums, and repurposed buildings, so much so that the area north of town is now the largest National Historic Landmark District in the country, with over 6,000 properties in it.

History practically screams at you from every corner of Butte. Though the aforementioned Historic District is the most obvious, many signs of Butte’s Wild West days still exist throughout the city. Located on the ‘Richest Hill on Earth,’ the miners of Butte worked hard, lived hard, and died hard, engaging in the various vices historical Butte offered. Among the notorious buildings there is the Dumas Brothel, which was the longest running brothel in the United States, and is believed to be last remaining building in the country built in the Victorian Brothel style. Today, thankfully for Butte residents, the area is a museum documenting the oddity. The Berkeley Pit is an open pit mine, 1,800 feet deep and half full of toxic water. The so-called largest superfund site in the country, the Berkeley Pit is, nevertheless, impressive, with its incredibly rich colors, and a metal concentration so high, copper can be mined from the water itself.

More than just its history, Butte-Silver Bow is also home to two universities, Montana Tech and the University of Montana. These two colleges form the center of a thriving biotech industry that has taken root in Butte the past two decades after mining left town. The area is also a world leader in mining and environmental tech fields, a distinction unsurprising when you know of Butte’s history. If you’re looking for something a bit wacky, don’t miss Evel Knievel Days every summer in Butte, where 50,000 daredevils from across the country descend on Butte for one crazy party.

Whether you want to make the next great breakthrough in mining technology, or just want enjoy Big Sky Country, Butte-Silver Bow is the place for you. Contact Butte-Silver Bow auto shipping companies today for their assistance in moving you to the Richest Hill on Earth!
