Map of Butte

Welcome to Butte!

Founded in the late 1800s, Butte—s history and landscape have been shaped by extensive copper mining. As one of only two cities in the United States recognized as a National Historic Landmark, the previously booming Butte is an architect—s paradise since it features over 4000 historic buildings. One such building is the Butte-Silver Bow County Courthouse, which was built in the elaborate Beaux Arts style and features columns and pilasters reminiscent of Roman architecture. To learn about the history and equipment used in copper mining, visit the World Museum of Mining. The massive Berkeley Pit is also a popular attraction, as it was one of the largest open-pit copper mines in the United States. Butte is the hometown of motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel, and every July the city hosts Evel Knievel Days, which features an exhibit about the daredevil, a classic car show and a fireworks display.
