Butte's Irish Heart
Who Says You Can't Go Home

St. Mary’s Neighborhoods Reunion Committee

The neighborhoods of St. Mary’s Parish in Butte, Montana, were some of the first settled by immigrants coming to work in Butte’s copper mines in the early 1900s. Most families were Irish and Cornish, and they lived in neighborhoods called Dublin Gulch, Corktown, Sunnyside, Muckerville, and Anaconda Road. This book combines the oral history of these families with more than 900 of their family photos to record what it was like to live, work, and play in Butte’s very Irish heart.
