"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.

You have to take a guided tour now, closed to public, but is cheap I highly recommend it. Go to the mall to do the tour. Beautiful view of the city from the top and the monument is very cool. There is also a women's memorial up there where you can honor the special women in your life.

This is truly a must see attraction. The history is inspirational. It shows what can happen when a Community comes together. Rhonda was our tour guide and she had a way of making this a special location.

I didn't take the road to the top to see it due to lack of time. I have been to Butte twice in the last 2 years and have been amazed by the view from Butte. It is pretty impressive to see this large statue on top of the mountain.

You can see this amazing statue from everywhere in Butte...but for us we needed to see her up close so we took the tour up the mountain to see for ourselves. We booked our tour over the phone as it is the only way to go up the mountain to see The Lady. The boarding place is in a shopping... More

I am not a religious person but interested in the construction and sight of the statue. I am glad I went. The bus ride is bumpy but informative. It will be great if/when they get a tram. I think it is good to take the tour once and realize the vision the people of Butte had in constructing this statue.

I feel this is a 'must see' when you visit the very interesting town of Butte, MT. It is sort of hard to miss the 90' statue that stands atop the Continental Divide but it is truly a wondrous site! My Mom and I did not opt to take the tour to the Lady but rather drove as far as... More

We didn't get to go up to the Lady, but we could see her from where we stayed in Butte. It's so comforting to see her all lit up at night. It was stormy and cloudy while we were there, but she was shining through! Do some research on her - the process by which she was funded and built... More

Thanks to those who organized and built this statue in honor of their faith! It was visible from our hotel and shone like a star at night. Third tallest statue in the USA.

Several of us broke away to visit Our Lady. The meeting place is at a storefront at the Mall. It cost $16 a person. We signed up ahead of time, a good suggestion as there were 2-15 passenger vans filled. We watched a dated video on the construction of the statue. I think that could have been skipped or shown...

Don't miss the opportunity to visit Lady of the Rockies. Incredible town story and a magnificant statue that is unreal until you are up close to see it! I was so fascinated by the trip up the mountain, and listening to our bus driver who was part of the team that helped bring the Lady to the top of the... More
