Butte Trivia

ByGeorge Everett

Butte is unique among Montana cities—some say it is unique among cities anywhere—and now there is a book that proves it. Butte Trivia by longtime Butte resident George Everett is packed with 720 eye-opening questions and answers about the state’s most raucous and rollicking town. From Butte’s wide-open years to modern times, this book mines Butte’s richest veins of astounding facts and figures. Of course, Butte claims many Montana superlatives, including the state’s first millionaire, most expensive road, and deepest lake, and Butte may be the only city on the planet to boast ringing rocks, flying cowboys, and a memorial marker for a moose.
