  • This is a really well-crafted memorial. Hearing and reading the stories of those who perished was very moving and helped me to better understand their lives and unfortunate deaths. Highly recommended.
  • Nice memorial to those who lost that lie lifes in the mine. Very moving and very peaceful. Good veiws
  • Well-designed memorial. Here's a bonus: this site lies along a fairly new trail system that allows you to walk the area and see the spectacular views of the Highlands and the city of Butte. The placards and the sound recordings give a very somber account of the disaster for which this site was built for and a must see for anyone interested in the mining history of Butte.
  • Very interesting and respectful monument - the informative audio presentations were a big plus!
  • Great historic stop about Butte mining history and to witness the ongoing mining operations.
