• Butte, Montana

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Once known as The Richest Hill On Earth, Butte owe its existence to the gold that was discovered on Silver Bow Creek in 1864, and the silver and copper that was subsequently mined in huge quantities. Today the city is one of only two in the country to be recognised as National Historic Landmark, boasting literally thousands of historic buildings and an amazing collection of 'ghost signs', the huge, faded advertisements painted on the side of buildings.
