Lost Butte, Montana, a book by Richard I. Gibson, is in stores and museum gift shops around Butte. Or order from the publisher. It's also in E-book formats at all the usual places. And read an interview with Gibson, here, and on KXLF here. The Facebook page has many historic photos of Butte, and the Butte-Anaconda NHLD project showcases many historic buildings. Location-oriented posts can be found on HistoryPin. On Mondays beginning in January 2016, look for Gibson's "Mining City History" column in the Montana Standard.

Corner by Corner: Quartz and Crystal

By Richard I. Gibson

Today's post is the first in a series of podcasts exploring Butte corner by corner. Ideally, you'd be standing at the corner as you listen to the audio, but I hope armchair travelers enjoy it as well. Some pages that may be useful in connection with the podcast are linked below:

The Silver King Lode
Architect Charles Prentice
