"Die Vergessene Stadt: Butte, Montana" a film by Thomas Schadt Saturday, April 19 at 6:00 Grand Hotel - 122 W. Broadway Free
In the summer of 1994 a group of residents of Butte, Montana, committed to the preservation and promotion of Butte's unique historical architecture, came together to form the Butte Citizens for Preservation and Revitalization — Butte CPR.
CPR provides grants to improve buildings, educational tours, lectures, preservation workshops, and other events, liaison with local government, business, and civic organizations, and the labor to restore, renovate and salvage historical buildings in the nation's largest National Historic Landmark District, encompassing 5,991 historically significant resources.
Butte CPR's efforts have impacted dozens of buildings, both residential and commercial, since the organization was founded. Join us and help make a difference!
Through their positive, hands-on participation in the civic life of Butte, [Butte CPR is] creating a greater understanding that Butte's historic architecture is what makes Butte what it is. And that is something worth fighting for!"
