Butte, Montana



Butte also has something few other cities can claim – a rich and incredible history. Visiting Butte, one can literally step back into time. Butte is also one of only two cities to be recognized as a National Historic Landmark (the other is Lowell, MA) – with more than 4000 historic buildings of one kind or another. Butte is literally teeming full of historic buildings – and makes other “restored” historic towns seem rather lame in comparison. And if all the historical buildings and “ghost signs” aren’t enough, there is always the every present old mining rigs (over 40 of them dot the sky in Butte) to help remind visitors what built Butte into the town that it is today.

For this reason, it’s highly recommended that anyone who plans on visiting Montana, whether it is for fishing or something else, make plans to stop by and check out the Butte. It’s a unique city that is well worth the visit. Edited excerpt from BigSkyFishing.com.
