Located on 46 acres of lush landscape, the Daly Mansion is the historic home of 19th Century American industrialist Marcus Daly. The exhibits here convey the story of Daly and his rise from working-class immigrant to copper magnate, as well as local, regional, and international history tied to his extended family.

About the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust--

The Daly Mansion was purchased by the State of Montana in 1986 through the Montana Estate Tax Forgiveness Act, in conjunction with a loan from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is operated by the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust (DMPT), which was started in 1986 by a band of courageous citizens determined to save history.

In partnership with the University of Montana, the State of Montana leases the Mansion and approximately 50 acres of grounds to the DMPT. The DMPT is charged with the full financial responsibility of the Mansion which includes salaries, maintenance, and operation costs.

The DMPT does not receive any operational support, at this time, from either the State or the Federal Government. The Mansion was first opened to the public in May 1987, after being closed and boarded up for over 40 years following Margaret Daly's death in 1941.

The Daly Mansion Preservation Trust is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the Daly Mansion, its buildings, grounds and the history they convey. It is a center for education, cultural and community activities.
