Hell Roarin' Gulch


Stroll back through time on the boardwalks of Hell Roarin' Gulch, an authentic reproduction of an 1890's mining town. In addition to 35 buildings carefully reconstructed from old materials, about 15 free-standing historic buildings were brought in to the Gulch intact.


Peer into the windows of the past.


A bank, general store, funeral parlor, jail, union hall, school, two churches, Chinese laundry, mining company, and doctor's office are among the many buildings you can visit.


All are carefully filled with thousands of authentic antiques from early Butte and other nearby mining communities. The drawers in the Chinese Herbalists' Shop are full of real, original herbs and dried snakes (not just the skins!), and the containers on the pharmacist's shelves contain their original potions.
