Mining Childhood*

Mining Childhood*

Growing Up in Butte, Montana, 1900–1960

Created: Thursday, August 13, 1914

Growing Up in Butte, Montana, 1900–1960
by Janet L. Finn

Mining Childhood offers a child’s-eye view of Butte, Montana, from 1900 to 1960, the years of Butte’s fame as the “Richest Hill on Earth.” Children were keen observers and active participants in community life, and childhood accounts of work, play, family, schooling, ethnicity, and neighborhood life offer fresh perspectives on Butte. These stories remind us that children were not sheltered from the “adult” world around them; rather, they were shapers of that world.
