    They have done a wonderful job with this monument. Easily accessible. Lots of historical information on hand, both written and audio. I have to admit, it was quite haunting to be walking around the di...  more »

    The whole area being restored from the mining was interesting and worth the stop. The Memorial Overlook provides a beautiful view and reminds us of the struggles for immigrants.  more »

    It is hard to picture how over 160 hard rock miners died in this mining accident but it is well explained and honored the heroes of that day almost 100 years ago.  more »

    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.

    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.
