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. « less

The ladies history is amazing. How she was built and how she was delivered to her special place at the top of the mountain is unbelievable...The trip up to see her and to stand it her shadow was humbling. The view that is hers everyday is one I will never forget. Such beauty...

The Lady of the Rockies is a statue overlooking the City of Butte. In order to visit the statue, you must take the tour which transports you to the site. The tour starts with a short video about the construction of the statue. We were fortunate to have a tour guide that was involved with the project from the beginning.... More

You don't even need to go to the site- you can see her from all over town. She catches the light in the evening and is a reassuring presence.

We spent the morning and took the bus tour up the mountain. This is the only way to go as the road is private. The cost is minimal and it takes about 2 hours to do the tour. The road is very scary as it is an old unpaved road that goes up the side of the mountain. The school... More

This is a great story of how this project got started - be sure to listen to the tour movie even if you don't go on the tour to the mountain. It's truly a story of the Butte people and how they stick together and work together!

Butte is known for its controversial statue Our Lady of the Rockies which is a huge statue of Mary that sits on the continental divide. I say controversial because it is a religious icon on public land. Not everyone holds the same religious views. But what do you do when the history of a place is heavily steeped in Irish... More

This is a "must see" if you visit Butte, regardless of your religious beliefs. The story of the building of it is quite amazing, and seeing the monument is really amazing. One of our guides was both a longtime miner and he helped build the monument. He commented that, down in the mines, the Unions reign, and if he tried... More
