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2010, and features a larger reading room, two humidity and temperature controlled vaults to house thousands of feet of historical documents, and an auditorium to host conferences, meetings, and speakers.

  • I was lucky enough to purchase the CD, Coppertown Blues! Being a Butte native, the history of Butte fascinates me. Listening to this CD brought me home! The Butte Archives is amazing, quick to help, quick to deliver purchases. Go BUTTE!
  • I've been working on a project involving historic photos and architectural drawings, and everyone at the archives has been super helpful, friendly, and quick to respond via email! They have also helped me with the historical facts that helped to tell the story. I needed some extra help finding blueprints, and was able to quickly schedule a time to come in and get the help I needed. Thank you Aubrey, Lindsay, Ellen, Kim and everyone else for everything you do!
