History

Built between 1884 and 1888 this 34 room mansion was the home of William Andrews Clark one of Montana’s three famous Copper Kings (three industrial giants who fought – and won - brutal battles to gain control over the State’s copper mines).

The mansion had gas and electric chandeliers, hand carved fireplaces and staircases as well as stained glass windows.

Since 1953 the Cote family has owned – and lived in – the mansion. They now operate it as a bed and breakfast.

The mansion was renovated in 2012.

In the summer there are 4 guided tours a day; tours are also available during the winter if booked in advance.

 

Paranormal Activity

The owners do not believe the mansion is haunted.

People have reported a light colored misty form in the first floor hallway as well as the basement.

In the games room a presence that drains all the warmth out of the room is felt.

In the ballroom and old chapel there is a playful presence that likes to play tricks on people who do not believe in ghosts or the paranormal.

There is also one reported incident where a trunk – that was locked – suddenly flipped open in the ballroom while a tour was being given.

Other Reported Activity: doors opening and closing on their own; cold spots; light anomalies and the feeling of not being alone.
