The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives is proud to present its All Nations Exhibit, on display in the upper and lower lobbies of the building. The exhibit showcases the many nationalities that made up Butte’s population in 1917.
Butte’s rise as a significant industrial center in the late 19th and early 20th centuries coincided with tumultuous events in modern European history. Waves of European immigrants came to America’s industrial centers in search of better opportunities between 1870 and 1920. They came from Ireland, Italy and Croatia; Cornwall, Finland, and Serbia. Immigrants came from all over the world to participate in the development of the American west and they settled in Butte to work in the mines and supportive industries and businesses. The exhibit also features the contributions of Montana’s Native American tribes, and African American culture brought to Butte by former slaves or their children following the Civil War.
