Inspired by a chateau they saw in Europe, Charles and Katherine Clark built this 26-room mansion in 1898 with support from their father, W. A. Clark. US Senator James E. Murray also lived in the home. The home was also home to the Butte College of Music, which grew to be the largest of its kind in Montana. Finally, the chateau was home to the Fez Club, a fraternal organization that held lavish parties for fellow Shriners. The home now holds the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives. The public can enjoy art, historical exhibits, programming, and archives and genealogical resources.
