Silver Bow Club

Erected in 1906, this magnificent Art Deco building with French wallpaper, Belgian brick and hand painted frescos was the meeting place for the rich and famous in Butte. The movers and shakers would meet here, drinking the finest whisky, smoking the best cigars and cutting some of the biggest financial deals of the early 20th Century.

The third floor was reserved for the "mistresses" in this men-only club! Members included J.P. Morgan, George Hearst and Henry Rogers. As the Great Depression took hold, the Silverbow Club went into decline and was ironically purchased for the Miners Union Hall in 1950. Today the Club serves as the headquarters of the Butte Celtic Irish Cultural Center.

The Silver Bow Club is part of our West Walking Tour.
