Additional Details:
Butte, Montana and the Berkeley Pit, viewed from the Continental Divide, show how closely tied a community can be to its economy, with the now-unworked open pit copper mine abutting the historic uptown area, and unused “gallows frame” mine elevators still sharing space with the buildings erected upon “the richest hill on earth.”
