"Our Lady of the Rockies", a 90-foot statue sitting atop the Continental Divide is the result of a dream and six years of hard work.With the help of generous donations and a wealth of love and faith, countless volunteers completed a seemingly impossible task. On December 29, 1985 "Our Lady" was placed on the East Ridge to overlook Butte, Montana. The base sits at an elevation of 8510 feet above sea level and 3500 feet above the mile high city of Butte. The statue, lighted and visible at night, is a spectacular sight to behold.

If you look to the east and see her standing on the top of the mountain you may get a great feeling of peace. I experienced overwhelming joy and that peace when we arrived at her base. Inside are thousands of memorials. Paper and stick pins are available to those who want to leave memorial messages to loved ones. Awe... More

I will admit we didn't stop, I was just looking to take a photo while driving on I-90, it brings a little excitement to a very long trip! But it is quite interesting, especially while looking at the other photos on Trip Advisor, to see something like this in North America!

This is an inspirational journey to the top of the Continental Divide to the reward of a vista that encompasses almost 100 miles to the west on a clear day. But even more awesome is the Lady of the Rockies, built by volunteers as a thank you. Devotion, hard work, and team spirit combined to build and lift her as... More

Loved the video and the tour guide; the statue is amazing and the video was very informative. The ride up to the statue was well planned and on schedule.

The view of Butte will take your breath away. The story of the Lady will inspire you. The guide will take your picture so that the face of the Lady is in the picture with you and her arms seem to be embracing you. Be sure and see the video about the making of the Lady and shop in the... More

Breathtaking. Need I say more? Constructed and erected by a motley crew of amateur volunteers to honor the wish of a husband whose wife was suffering from cancer -now cured, this statue is every bit as awesome as Lady Liberty. Just a tad shorter, to hear the story from the guide, they conceived every bit of its construction, even building... More

Our Lady Of The Rockies is a very worthwhile trip. The view of Butte MT standing next to Our Lady is breathtaking. The statue is incredible. Our guide was exceptional. She even sang for us while we were inside Our Lady. The weather was beautiful. We had a great trip. The twinkling lights of Butte at night are something to... More

The ride up and down the mountain is grueling. Once you are there it is wonderful. We had a great time taking pictures of the statue and looking inside. Our guide was involved in the actual erection of Our Lady and had great stories to tell. You meet at the Mall and view a film about the construction and placement... More

I arrived at the gift shop for Our Lady of the Rockies at 10 minutes to 10; just before the tour was to leave. While the website states reservations are recommended, there was no problem getting on the tour. Our driver and guide Tom was brilliant! A former miner and lifelong resident of Butte, he had stories that entertained us... More
