The Daly Mansion

The Daly Mansion is located in Hamilton, Montana, less than an hour from our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. It makes a great day trip for our guests, particularly at this time of year, when the gardens are in full bloom.

Marcus Daly was an industrialist who lived from 1843 to 1900. His great wealth came from mining copper in the Montana Territory and the copper smelter he created in Anaconda, a town he built to support the smelter. His wife Margaret lived as a widow in the Bitterroot Valley for more than 40 years (spring through fall), and much of what is today found in the Daly Mansion was acquired by her.
