We made it into Butte, Montana by early afternoon and checked in. What a wonderful place...The Copper King Mansion! From its golden corridors to its lavish dining room, this 30 room red brick mansion exuded Victorian elegance.

William Andrews Clark, one of the wealthiest copper magnates, built it in the 1880's. The present owners have restored and furnished it with the period antiques.

We spent our first night in the bedroom that took up most of the right hand corner of this building on the second floor. The smaller window over the two entrances facing to the right was the Master bathroom.

This is the Master bedroom located on the second floor. And we were able to spend our first night at the Copper King Mansion in this very room. It has it's own large sitting room and a very spacious bathroom with a beautiful antique claw foot tub. If you click on the above picture you will see more detail of this gorgeous room with it's 16 foot ceilings.
The wonderful home is filled with amazing items from long ago. This dish set was very interesting displayed in this cabinet along a long hallway.
This is the mirror over the dresser in the Master bedroom...it actually matches the headboard of the bed!
And this is the dresser under that beautiful mirror. It was an amazing night in this room...It must be a happy place...I didn't feel any unhappy spirits here.
