Description

Located on 46 acres of lush landscape, the Daly Mansion was the summer home of 19th Century American industrialist Marcus Daly. The mansion is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Marcus Daly was a copper magnate from Butte, Montana. He built a smelter in Anaconda, MT. and purchased 28,000 acres of land in the Bitterroot Valley for his summer home "Riverside". A farmhouse was remodeled by 1889 and remodeled again in 1897 to a Queen Anne style Victorian home. The home reminded Marcus of a church so remodeling plans were once again drawn up. Marcus died in 1900 and his wife, Margaret, asked Missoula architect A.J. Gibson to start the remodel in the Georgian Revival style. The summer home was completed in 1910. Margaret Daly spent summers in the home until her death in 1941. The home sat vacant for the next 40 years and much of the deterioration happened during this time. In 1986 the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust was created by a band of courageous citizens determined to save history. The structure has been stabilized and preserved for future generations. A dedicated staff and volunteers oversee the daily operation of the Daly Mansion and its professionally landscaped grounds.
