"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.

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

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.
