Butte Montana Real Estate
Montana as a state did not start to bloom until the 19th century. Accordingly Butte began as a mining town in the late during the 19th century. Gold and silver were the first ores to be mined in the area, but the advent of electricity caused a soaring demand for copper, which was abundant in the area. With an estimated population of about 85,000 at its peak 1910-1917, it was the largest city for many hundreds of miles in all directions. It is estimated that a third of all copper produced in the U.S. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries came from Butte.
