“provides a panoramic view of the remnants of mining activities”

Near midnight on June 8, 1917, a fire broke out at the 2,400 foot level of the Granite Mountain Mine. It quickly spread to the neighboring Speculator Mine. Fire, smoke, and gas claimed the lives of 168 miners. The memorial, built in 1996, features letters to families from the fallen miners, a reproduction of the story in the Butte newspaper, and the names of the miners who gave their lives. The plaza of the memorial is paved with bricks bearing families’ remembrances. The memorial also provides a panoramic view of the remnants of mining activities on the Butte Hill from its earliest days to the open pit copper mining that continues today.
