Search Hamilton Montana

Marcus Daly, an Irish immigrant, made his fortune in the mines of Butte and founded the Anaconda Mining Company. One of Montana's colorful "Copper Kings" he established the towns of Anaconda, with his smelter, and Hamilton, with his lumber industry.

In the late 1880's, Marcus Daly built his family a summer home in Hamilton, the heart of the beautiful Bitterroot Valley.

The Daly Mansion and the estate known as "Riverside", were once part of Daly's 22,000 acre Bitterroot Stock Farm. The Mansion occupies 24,000 square feet on three floors, with 24 bedroom, 14 bathrooms, and 7 fireplaces, 5 of which are faced with Italian Marble.

Today, the Mansion and fifty acres of grounds surrounding it are owned by the State of Montana, managed by the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust, and recognized as a National Historic Site.

The Mansion is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
