  • 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!
  • I love this place so much
  • A very somber place. The gravity of those who had passed in mining accidents not only at the monument but elsewhere give you a heavy sense of respect for those people . There are letters the miners wrote that you can read as well as an audio interpretation. If you want to get a sense of how hard the job was and the gall Those men had this is the place for you.
