It is 25 years ago the end of this month that the Miles Howard burned down. Yow. Amazing that the Montana Bar was saved!

I talked to someone who was having dinner at the Hole in the Wall that night and thought, jeez, Butch is burning someone's steak, when he realized smoke was coming in from outside. He watched the fire from across the street, eating vanilla ice cream with soup spoons out of a big tub that Butch pulled out of the freezer.

We seem to have done a better job recovering from the 2009 fire than the 1985 one.

Here's a photo of the Miles Howard fire that I scanned from the 1985 CCDHS "Branding Iron" yearbook:

Steadman's Coast to Coast store burned in 1989.
