Butte, Montana Picture Tours – Walkerville, Montana Tour

Welcome!  There is so much to see, so let’s get started on

this twelve stop Butte, Montana Picture Tour.

 

Welcome to the Butte, Montana Picture Tours.  We will start the Butte tour, at my old summer playground, Walkerville, Montana (Elevation 6,903ft / 1,923m).  During the tour please remember not to pick up any blasting caps (see gallery) and be sure you are home before the nine pm fire siren sounds.   Will let gravity pull down us down from Walkerville to the Montana Tech and Big Butte area.  We’ll explore the World Museum of Mining, the historic buildings in the St James Hospital area then walk east down West Park Street to the historic and picturesque downtown area.  We’ll climb the East Ridge, explore the “Flats” and more.  All that walking around makes you thirsty so, of course, we will ride out “Harding Way” (old Highway 2) to get a drink from the water fountain found along side the road.

No visit to Walkerville would be complete without paying a visit to the Granite Mountain Mine Memorial (June 8, 1917).  The grave marker of the mass grave of 168 miners can be seen in the Mountain View Cemetery down on the “Flats” near the airport.
