The Richest Hill on Earth!”
You can see it in the smooth, worn streets, the ads painted on commercial buildings a century ago, the headframes and church steeples that mark entry into what was once the “Richest Hill on Earth.” It’s no surprise, then, that the town’s vintage architecture and rich history are often what draw visitors to take a closer look.
Yet once they turn off I-90 and into town, visitors quickly discover that Butte isn’t only brick and mortar that have been preserved. The spirit, individuality, and pride of the people here are as palpable as the day gold was discovered on Silver Bow Creek. It’s that character that enchants, that wide-armed hospitality that invites.
So, explore our website, our visitor center, take a walking tour, or hop on a trolley. Butte has comfortable hotels, great restaurants, spirited nightspots and a wealth of attractions and outdoor activities, all waiting for you.
Welcome and please enjoy Butte!
