April-September, 2018

Exhibits are viewable during regular business hours, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm and always free.

100 Objects illustrates 150 years of Butte history. From the iconic head frames that punctuate the city’s landscape to a simple miner’s candlestick, or a pair of leather boxing gloves and a bottle of beer from the original Butte Brewing Company, the Archives will showcase 100 butte artifacts that best represent the city’s history.

These objects inform on Butte’s mining and labor heritage, and where that heritage places Butte in the 21st century of environmental restoration and historic preservation. These icons of Butte were chosen because they shaped the city’s past, are in its present, and tell a story about its people.

An opening reception for 100 Objects will be held Thursday, May 3, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
