Butte is beat. Battered, baked and butt-kicked.
Either Anaconda's copper ran out or the townsfolk got ripped off by the copper barons.
They could learn a thing or two from the people of Jerome, Arizona. Like, how to revive an old copper mining town. Maybe with ghosts, maybe something else. Build a myth, they will come.

Couldn't, wouldn't stay in Butte. Had to roll 20 miles west to the Fairmont Resort...
