Abstract

Butte, Montana, is a distinctive city in the American West that reached its industrial apogee early in the twentieth century. Since then, urban decline has left its mark on the local landscape and community. To assess how a modern sense of place has been shaped by Butte residents and leaders, this article examines how traditional landscapes of production are redefined in postindustrial Butte and also identifies significant modern landscapes of consumption that symbolize the city's attempt to survive in a postindustrial setting.
