Massive Mansion For Sale: Own A Huge Piece of Montana History
The stunning home that was Marcus Daly's headquarters is remodeled and currently for sale. It's REALLY big and really gorgeous. This listing says it can sleep 32 people.
Although most people think of Butte or Anaconda when you mention Marcus Daly, but this Copper King of Montana had a home built in Hamilton, Montana. When you compare the size, history, and beauty of this property - it almost seems to be a bargain, listed shy of $4 million. It's the "Downtown Daly Bitterroot Mansion".
This particular home is actually one of the smaller buildings that you might find associated with Marcus Daly, after making his fortune. However, it's probably one of the few you'll ever have the chance to actually own.
(No Lookie-Loo's should bother, as "proof of fiscal ability is required prior to any showing" per the official listing.) The home is currently listed with PureWest Real Estate and presented by Bobbi J. Lockhart, and located about 45 minutes south of Missoula. It really is a lovely piece of Montana history.
According to the official listing on Realtor.com (January, 2023): "The Downtown Daly Bitterroot Mansion remodel is complete! Modernizing and preserving the history of the original Stock Farm headquarters of Marcus Daly." Who wouldn't want their own pickleball court and the nicest "bunk room" I've ever seen?

Here's an interesting fact about Marcus Daly from Wikipedia - "Daly invested some of his money in horse breeding at his Bitterroot Stock Farm located near Hamilton and was the owner/breeder of Scottish Chieftain, the only horse bred in Montana to ever win the Belmont Stakes (1897)." Sadly, Marcus Daly died in 1900.
