Montana Historical MarkersMasonic Temple - Butte, MT

in Montana Historical Markers

Chartered October 3, 1876 as Butte Lodge #22, the Masons of Butte had this temple built at the turn of the century. It was a replacement for an earlier, and less extravagant, lodge building which the, by that time 500 member, lodge had outgrown.

The second and last building to serve the city of Butte as city hall, this somewhat extravagant Richardsonian Romanesque structure pointed out to one and all that Butte was now a city of means and a centre of power.

If the Knights of Columbus of Butte, Montana were to celebrate the centennial exactly on its 100th birthday, then this building would be 99 years, 11 months and 28 days old as I write this.

A long, narrow building n a corner lot, the Neithammer Brothers doubtless thought they had the perfect spot for a butcher shop. If s, they were right, as a butcher shop operated from this building until 1970.

A flashy pink brick building, this is appropriate as it is now occupied by "Flash's" a photography studio with the flashiest neon sign on the block. Not primary, this is simply a contributing building to this district.

Another building with a sandstone parapet, this one still legible. Below that parapet is some nice brick corbelling as well as chain brickwork above the upper windows. Below the windows is a stone sill connecting the two. Altogether, a nice façade.

Built circa 1905, the building has a rusticated sandstone parapet in which was carved the name and date of the building. Sandstone, being quite soft, was a less than brilliant choice of material as the inscriptions have become nearly unreadable.

Built in 1908 as a moving picture theatre, this must have been the first in the town. Later, in 1925, another movie theatre was built next door, as this one had closed by 1913. Later the building housed a pool hall and even a bordello upstairs.
