“Mining Memorial”

The Mining Memorial was interesting to see and very touching to read the letters that the trapped miners wrote to their families in their last hours.

I visit Butte every year to attend a career fair at Montana Tech and while I'm there I always make a point of visiting this site. It is very peaceful overlooking the Berkley Pit and you get a feeling that this memorial is very special. So sad yet very heart warming that so many years later, these people are remembered.

Great views of the copper mine and yesteryear mines. Plenty of historical markers of the worst mine fire in U.S. history. Worth an hour of ones time to view and read about the mine and the men who worked there.

A free informative monument to those who perished in the largest hard rock mining disaster. I think it is only worthy of the number one spot in Butte only if you are too cheap to visit the mining museum or Berkeley pit.
