Every part of Montana is steeped in history, perhaps none so much as the old mining community of Butte. Some of their old buildings, like the Pekin Noodle Parlor and the Dumas Brothel Museum, help to tell the stories of Butte’s past. But this little city is best known for the time in which it was The Richest Hill on Earth. In fact, it’s still called that to this day.

Love Butte? You’re not alone. This is one Montana city that is anything but ordinary.
