Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives reviews
The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives took archives for the town of Butte. They started this in 1981. We can access this. We can learn from the history and manuscripts, and photo collections of Butte..... more »
Lots of information about Butte residents and especially the miners. The archivists were so helpful and all you have to do is have a little information and they're off. Especially appreciated Harriet.... more »
What a great space after the complete remodel several years ago. The large meeting area is useful and often open to the public. The rotating historical displays are also quite a treat. Helpful and professional staff!
