Butte, Montana

A bit of the setting.  Trying to make some kind of come-back as a tourist attraction, Butte is stumbling badly.  Perhaps it is the problem of peddling a kind of necropolis as a positive thing, or perhaps, like many other places, it is being squeezed by the facts of the economy.  People have less “discretionary” money, or perhaps it is the same, but running up endless credit no longer seems a viable option.   Today coming up the hill I noted a refurbished Victorian mansion that had been gussied up to be a B&B had a new “for sale” shingle out.   Signs of the times.
