- The Copper
King Mansion is a 34-room Victorian mansion built from 1884 to
1888 as the Butte residence of William Andrews Clark, one of
Montana's three famous "Copper Kings" who helped establish the fledgling Montana territory
through their business ventures.
The Copper King Mansion has been owned, operated and occupied
by the Cote family for four generations. It is as much their
heritage to preserve now as it was for the Clark family a century
before. Recognizing the historical value of the mansion, the
Cote family has endeavored to keep the home as close to its original
state as possible. Solely funded by tours, bed and breakfast
guests, and catered events, the Copper King Mansion remains the
only privately owned mansion in Montana accessible to the public.
From May 1st through September 30th, the mansion is open daily for guided tours
on the hour every hour from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The price of the guided tour is $7.50 for adults and
$3.50 for children. The tour is free
for overnight guests. To arrange a tour, or to reserve a room
for the night, call 406-782-7580 or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
