The Archives is housed in the former 1900 Butte Fire Department station located in the Butte Anaconda National Historic Landmark District.

In 2007 a $7.5 million dollar bond issue was passed to renovate the existing Fire Station and add a humidity and temperature controlled vault addition.

The newly renovated Archives opened in August of 2010, and features a larger reading room, two humidity and temperature controlled vaults to house thousands of feet of historical documents, and an auditorium to host conferences, meetings, and speakers.

  • Lots of information about Butte residents and especially the miners. The archivists were so helpful and all you have to do is have a little information and they're off. Especially appreciated Harriet....  more »

  • What a great space after the complete remodel several years ago. The large meeting area is useful and often open to the public. The rotating historical displays are also quite a treat. Helpful and professional staff!
