With Halloween coming up, we've been taking a look at some of Butte's most well-known haunted locations. One place, or rather, places, that bear serious consideration are Butte's mineyards which, for many, became graveyards. Historical markers around any mineyard in Butte give the mine's years of operation, it's depth and somewhat morbidly, the number of men who lost their lives there.

It's Confirmed; A Plan is in Place for The World Museum of Mining
Just yesterday, I posted an article about the fate of the World Museum of Mining's Opening Day. The original plan was for organizers to unveil another awe-inspiring season of Butte's nostalgia to the public beginning April 1st!

While the museum gift shop and some underground tours will still open on the FIRST of next month, the museum grounds will NOT open until April 20th. Well, that's as long as winter doesn't overstay its welcome as much as it already has. Unprecedented amounts of snow on the premise led to the decision not to open the outside area of the museum as initially planned.
