Travel Montana (406-444-2654) is a good place to start building your itinerary, and the Butte Chamber of Commerce publishes a visitors’ guide that lists both local attractions and accommodations (1-800-735-6841; 406-494-5595).
As might be expected, Butte has a vigorous historical society, and it publishes an excellent walking tour (P.O. Box 3913, Butte, MT 59701).
Butte’s robust past is thoroughly and handsomely chronicled in George Everett’s Champagne in a Tin Cup: Uptown Butte and the Stories Behind the Facades (Outback Ventures, P.O. Box 4252, Butte, MT 59702; $12.95).
