Completed in 1910, the Daly Mansion was designed for Margaret Daly, the widow of one of Montana?s Copper Kings, Marcus Daly. Prior to making his fortune in mining in Butte as well as building the Anaconda Mining Company from scratch, Daly had humble beginnings as an Irish immigrant trying his luck in a new and foreign land at just 15 years of age. He is credited for founding the towns of Hamilton and Anaconda with his lumber and smelter businesses respectively.

The Daly Mansion was built by A.J. Gibson in the area where Marcus Daly originally built his family?s summer home, the Riverside Estate. The property covered 22,000 acres of ground and was then known as the Bitterroot Stock Farm. As for his widow?s mansion, it had a floor area of 24,000 square feet, with three floors, three dozen bedrooms, fourteen bathrooms, and with five out of seven fireplaces featuring an Italian marble fa?ade.

At present, the Georgian Revival home is now operated by the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust and is listed as a National Historic Site.
