In celebration of Butte’s sesquicentennial – 150 years – the Butte Archives is hosting a historic cakes bonanza at the county courthouse from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3.
The event starts with Chief Executive Matt Vincent unveiling an exhibit in the courthouse rotunda documenting Butte’s history from the 1860s to the present day.
Following the unveiling, birthday cake will be served until 3 p.m.
The showcase cake is from an 1864 recipe. And when it was baked 150 years ago, it might have been the most expensive cake in the Montana Territory.
