Very moving and respectful of the miners' great sacrifice!

The ultimate tribute to the labor movement in Butte, MT! These miners worked hard for their families and were treated as objects by greedy mine owners. A true American tragedy!

This is a well designed and engineered site for people, families, or groups to learn about the diversity of miners that worked the mines, the history of Buttes mining heritage, and information about a mining disaster that affected Buttes populace, and eventually even the very outlay of the city itself!

It's a little difficult to find but worth the effort. It's a powerful testament to the people from all corners of the globe that left their families and countries to come to Butte America in search of a better life, only to have it taken by the mines.

The site of one of the worlds worst mining accidents, this memorial is worth seeing. There are recordings of points of views of various victims. It is seriously important and germane.

We had relatives visiting from California who were interested in the history of our great city. We took them to the Granite Mountain Memorial Overlook, so they could see first hand the sacrifice that our miners made to make a living for their families. The memorial is very sobering and quiet.

We enjoyed the overlook view of the active mine (biggest in N. America) as well as the audio recordings of the survivors of a huge fire disaster in the mine. Nationalities of all sorts worked there and are represented by a full list of names and country flags.

Our GPS took us to the middle of nowhere and we finally found the place by asking a local. The view is good and it provides you the historical perspective of life of a miner back then. There are trails for walking if you have time. It's close to the downtown unless you follow your GPS.
