Group of Men at Pioneer Meeting 1911, Butte

Some of the trails into Montana were blazed by the men pictured below. Not a one arrived later than 1862 and histories of Montana contain numerous references to the parts that many played in the development of the state. The picture was taken in Butte in 1911 while the group was attending a convention of Montana Pioneers.
