The Butte and Anaconda Historic District is the largest U.S. National Historic Landmark District in the state of Montana. It encompasses the communities of Butte, Anaconda, and Walkerville. It has the most resources per square mile of any such district, with a total area of over 600 acres. The districts were designated in 1986, and there are now more than 100 buildings and sites in the region.
It’s unclear exactly how the government will proceed with the cleanup in the Butte and Anaconda areas. While the cleanup has been ongoing for years, a recent visit by EPA administrator Scott Pruitt could speed up the process. Butte residents should be prepared for the upcoming changes. The EPA’s new leadership will make sure the communities are treated fairly. However, a clean-up must be done in a responsible and thorough manner.
It’s important to note that the two cities are located in different areas of the state. While they are adjacent to each other, they have largely different geographies. The Butte-Anaconda district is located on the west side of the Great Divide. In addition to being close to each other, Butte and Anaconda have a number of historic sites. One such historic site is Butte’s Alice mine, which was built in 1876. It is believed that the Butte-Anacondolfa area is still one of the best places to visit in the state.
The Butte-Anaconda & Pacific Railway operates about 63 miles of rail line, including 26 miles of main line. Its interchanges with Class I carriers BNSF and Union Pacific at Butte. In Anaconda, the railroad maintains a 20-bay locomotive roundhouse and a wheel and machine shop. The EPA also lists several other contaminants as hazardous.
The Butte, Anaconda & Pacific Railway was built by Marcus Daly in 1892. The railroad ran 26 miles between the towns of Anaconda and Butte. It was constructed with 75-pound steel rails and was designed to handle heavy freight traffic. The BAP carried more tonnage per mile than any other railway in the country and earned the nickname “Bigger Little Railroad in the Nation.”
While the Butte and Anaconda merger has put an end to the rivalry, there are still plenty of reasons to watch for both teams. A few years ago, the copper-mining industry in Butte and Anaconda was merged with Butte Central. Butte Central and Anaconda have been neighbors for over 150 years, and it’s easy to see why the two schools are a rivalry.
The Butte and Anaconda Historic District is a large area in Montana that was a center of copper mining for many years. It was named for the famous “Copper King,” Marcus Daly. This company had the power to control all of the mining in Butte. In fact, the town was one of the biggest copper producers in the U.S. at the time. It was the largest copper producer in the United States.
