Milltown, MT, along with adjacent Bonner and both in the heart of the timber wars since the Sagebrush Rebellion, was until recently the company town completely dependant on a lumber mill. After the timber companies left for the pulp forests of the Southeast, the mill building became a Bitcoin (or equivalent) server farm. No shit! Hydroenergy provided in part by a nearby dam (now decommissioned as part of a SuperFund cleanup) was dam cheap. Faraway capitalists have forever hollowed out and will forever hollow out this town.
