Butte Montana – Speakeasy And Underground Tunnels

Butte Montana Underground Tunnels

Miles of underground tunnels take men and women from street to street. Popping their heads up through the floor only to hand off freshly laundered garments to the privileged top-dwellers.

It reads like a science-fiction novel, but it’s far from it. Back in the early days of the mining town of Butte Montana, the Orientals (as Asians were once called) were forbidden to show their face on the streets after dark, so, the only way they could do business was to build tunnels throughout the town.

Those days are long gone, but the tunnels still remain, along with thousands of miles of mining tunnels that crisscross under the town.
