Butte Headframes in need of new lighting
Butte's Headframes are symbols of our city that are as unique as the people who live here and are distinct landmarks that are recognizable the world over. Active mines once dotted the Uptown landscape which has changed considerably since the formation of the Berkeley Pit, swallowing up entire neighborhoods and pushing future growth to the south of the mining camp. Today, the number of "gallows frames" that are still standing are a fraction of what they once were, and their historical importance is indeed significant. Twenty years ago, we put lights on many of the remaining frames, but they are in need of replacement.
