BUTTE -

The Treasure State is celebrating a birthday Friday.

On Friday, 124 years ago, Montana officially became the 41st state in the union.

North Dakota, South Dakota, and Washington are also celebrating their 124th birthdays this month.

In Butte Friday, people were celebrating the Mining City's contributions to the state's history.

"The money, the ore, the gold, the copper, it all really started here and it was such a driver in the history of the state and the establishment of the state," said Ellen Crain, director of the Butte Archives.

Officials at the Butte Archives say they are already planning a celebration for Montana's 125th birthday next year.
