Historic Mining Town - Butte, Montana
Home to gold, silver and eventually copper mines, Butte was a mining boomtown, once the largest city for hundreds of miles, and called "the Richest Hill on Earth" because of the value extracted from the area. At one point it had hundreds of saloons and a robust Red Light District (in operation until the early 1980s). Open pit mining began in the 1950s, including the opening of the Berkeley Pit in 1955, the largest truck-operated open pit copper mine in the United States. The Berkeley Pit was shut down in 1982. When water pumps at other mines were shut down, the pit filled with water loaded with toxic heavy metals. Today the pit is a major environmental hazard and Superfund site. Mining has declined, and the historic Uptown district shows its age, but the city has done a lot to preserve Uptown and to showcase its mining history.

Berkeley Pit From The Air:  Drone Footage from Butte, MT
This year, I needed to spend some time in Butte, Montana and I had the opportunity to see the local sites in my downtime while there. Coming from an environmental background, I was thrilled to be able to see the Berkeley Pit from a perspective many haven't been able to see. For those who are unfamiliar, the Berkeley Pit is the largest EPA Superfund site in the United States, meaning it's a historic site that is hugely contaminated. In this case, it is due to past work practices in copper mining.

Relics of Montana - Photo Series
I recently made a visit to the Missoula and Butte Montana area. I photographed ghost towns, abandoned mines, working ranches and a regional prison. I was fascinated by the the craftsmanship, ingenuity and beauty of the antique machinery. The prison was overwhelming. I couldn't help but feel dispirited and hopelessness as I wondered around the abandoned cells. I also recognized a glimmer of hope in the prisoner's personal graffiti, posters and pinups. Comments are welcome.

Ep. 120 - Dumas Brothel
Butte, Montana has its roots in mining. The town came to be known as the "Richest Hill on Earth" and gold, silver and copper were all mined here. As was the case with so many mining towns, a successful red light district grew within the town. One of the most successful and high-class brothels in town was the Dumas Brothel. Rich clientele could have their fantasies met here, but there was also pleasure for the working class in the basement, which ran like a sex mill. The brothel passed through many hands and has the reputation of being the longest running brothel in the country. And it seems that clients and the girls are still hanging out here in the afterlife. Several entities are thought to haunt this building. Join us as we explore the history and ahuntings of the Dumas Brothel! The Moment in Oddity is by Bob Sherfield and features Pykrete and Ice Aircraft Carriers and This Day in History is by Jessica Bell and features Joshua Slocum Traveling Round the World Solo.

The Montana Central Railway
Missoula author and railroad historian Bill Taylor details the history of The Montana Central Railway. By 1883 Canadian-born James J. Hill had become successful shipping grain and developing railroads in and around St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1884 his friend Paris Gibson, founding father of Great Falls, invited him to visit Montana. While there, he toured the Rocky Mountain front between Great Falls and Butte looking for investment opportunities and future traffic for his St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway (predecessor to the Great Northern Railway) which was in the process of building west. Hill bought mining property, silver options near Rimini, and invested in Gibson's Great Falls Townsite Company. He met with Marcus Daly, Butte s future copper baron, and Charles Broadwater, Helena banker and railroad promoter. Hill's visit was to have far-reaching consequences for the development of the territory. This is the story of the construction and the early operations of the Montana Central Railway between Great Falls and Butte, which was to become an integral part of Hill's railroad empire. Presented on November 14, 2013, at the Montana Historical Society, Helena.

The Ballad of the Hard Rock Miner - new arrangement
This is a new arrangement of The Ballad of the Hard Rock Miner. I hope that you enjoy it. I am pleased to include several period photographs courtesy of the Mohave Museum of History and Art. This song is inspired by "Deep Enough-A Working Stiff in the Western Mine Camps" - University of Oklahoma Press - by Frank Crampton. Many thanks to Ed Romanski of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona, for recommending this book to me. Ed is a transplanted New Yorker, like me, with his boots firmly rooted in Arizona's history. The heritage and history of Arizona needs to be discovered on foot, horseback, and in a 4-wheel drive truck. Many of the most interesting places are not marked on most maps. There is an abundant supply of accurate historical information that is readily available to the amateur historian: historical societies, foundations, archives, and libraries have been posting documents, maps, and photos on websites that are easily accessible. In addition, many books are available (both re-issues of out-of-print books and newly written) about Arizona mining history. The historic maps of Arizona display dense clusters of mines and mining camps that were centers of intense activity in the period 1880-1930. Names like Chloride, Constellation, Stanton, Gillette, Tiptop, Humbug, and Bradshaw City were the centers intense prospecting, mining, processing, and community life. Many of these historic sites do not make the cut of "ghost town" tourist books. Many of them are located within 5 miles of highways and interstates. Others are easily accessible in high-clearance vehicles via forest service roads and jeep trails. "Deep Enough" is essential reading for anyone wanting to know about the day-to-day life in the western mining camps in the early years of the 20th century. The song describes the life of a "hard-rock stiff" who works in a mine for ten days, and then moves on to the next mine. Miners of the day were very mobile, roaming the country from Butte, Montana to Bisbee, Arizona. The work rules of the day required a minimum of ten days work in order to draw a paycheck. The song expresses the realities of a dangerous occupation, the swaggering pride of a highly skilled craftsman, and the pleasures that were available in the mining camps and towns along the way. The Rand McNally Official 1925 Auto Trails Map is courtesy of the University of Kansas Libraries. The song is copyrighted by Robert T. Gibney 2011.

Exploring Homestake Mine & Weepah Mine, Arizona
#MineExploration of the Homestake Mine & Weepah Mine, which are located just west of US-93, about halfway been Wickenburg & Wikieup, on the banks of the Santa Maria River in Arizona's Yavapai County. The Homestake Mine & Weepah Mine are in the Black Mountains of the Arrastra Mountains Wilderness. I was surprised the Weepah Mine adit was still open, but it looked more exploratory, than meant to remove significant gold & silver. The Homestake Mine was also open, with several stopes & inclined shafts. Given the length of the drift level, I was surprised there were no ore cart tracks.

SWEET THUNDER by Ivan Doig On Sale Now A beloved character brings the power of the press to 1920s Butte, Montana, in this latest from the best storyteller of the West In the winter of 1920, a quirky bequest draws Morrie Morgan back to Butte, Montana, from a year-long honeymoon with his bride, Grace. But the mansion bestowed by a former boss upon the itinerant charmer, who debuted in Doig's bestselling The Whistling Season, promises to be less windfall than money pit. And the town itself, with its polyglot army of miners struggling to extricate themselves from the stranglehold of the ruthless Anaconda Copper Mining Company, seems—like the couple's fast-diminishing finances—on the verge of implosion. These twin dilemmas catapult Morrie into his new career as editorialist for the Thunder, the fledgling union newspaper that dares to play David to Anaconda's Goliath. Amid the clatter of typewriters, the rumble of the printing presses, and a cast of unforgettable characters, Morrie puts his gift for word-slinging to work. As he pursues victory for the miners, he discovers that he is enmeshed in a deeply personal battle as well—the struggle to win lasting love for himself. Brilliantly capturing an America roaring into a new age, Sweet Thunder is another great tale from a classic American novelist.

FAIRMONT  RV PARK  Anaconda, MT (Near Butte)
Fairmont RV Park, located between two historic cities - Anaconda and Butte, MT, is an easy off/on I-90 (Exit 211). Much of the lure of this part of the country is the Spirit of the American West. The Anaconda/Philipsburg area, the core of the Pintler Scenic Route, is blessed with year 'round recreation opportunities, scenic splendor, and plenty of history. Philipsburg, only 30 miles from Fairmont RV Park, was founded in 1886 as a trading center. It has a beautifully restored street front, and the Sweet Palace is "a must" -- it's an unbelievably huge Victorian Confectionary. Fishing in Montana's big rivers is an angler's dream; Rockhouds search for sapphires, garnets, crystals, quartz & amethyst. Mining history means untold numbers of Ghost towns. Anaconda, known for smelting copper for more than a century, is today a small town of friendly folks. Historical homes built in the 1880's still stand tall with architectural beauty that is sure to bring the cameras out of the cases. The huge brick smokestack, constructed in 1918, stands on a small hill & looms a total of 1,000 ft. above Anaconda. Today the site of that smelter is the location of the nationally known18-hole Old Works Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Old # l Trolley stops at the Butte Visitor's Center for daily tours of historical Butte. Fairmont RV Park is a great central location to hang your hat while sightseeing the area. There's so much to see and do that more than one night is needed before moving on. The RV Park & Campground has all the amenities to keep everyone happy. There are cabins, tenting & RV sites -- all located on 15 acres. Want to really go western? Reserve one of their popular Indian Teepees. There's a 1500 Sq. Ft. Recreation Hall with lots of games, pool table, internet, and the cushy couch awaits you. Group facilities include outdoor canopies and seating. A Country Store and fuel is also available for your convenience. Just next door is Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for water fun and basking in the sun of "Big Sky Country" - Montana.

Feeding Butte in Hard Times, documented by C. O. Smithers
“Feeding Butte in Hard Times” is the fourth of several themed presentations from the C.O. Smithers Photograph Collection. This presentation in photographs relates how Butte took care of feeding its needy during economic hard times and long strikes. A special focus is on the Hansen Packing Plant south of Butte, which, during the Great Depression, hired hundreds of WPA workers to process meat to feed the country. The photos were presented by staff archivist Irene Scheidecker, based on the work of volunteers Barb and Reno Parker. Funding for the C. O. Smithers Collection by the National Historic Publications and Records Commission, the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, and Montana Resources.

Fire in the Attic Spins at the Mountain Con Hoist House
Fire in the Attic wanted an epic photo shoot, so I brought them to the Mountain Con, one of the deepest mines in Montana. Surrounded by the dead machinery, the silence and darkness was broken by the sound and light of flaming staffs, swords, rope darts, nunchaku, kama, and hoops. We even had the fire department get called on us and five trucks showed up. This was a great shoot guys, I had a lot of fun filming you and putting this together. Let's do it again.
