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2010, and features a larger reading room, two humidity and temperature controlled vaults to house thousands of feet of historical documents, and an auditorium to host conferences, meetings, and speakers.
