"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.

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

Did a roadtrip with family across 4States (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota) this summer and I could easily proclaim that going up close with Our Lady was the highlight of our trip. Facilities in the compound is still under construction but just getting up to view the majestic likeness of the Virgin Mary is priceless! Worth a visit and... More

We loved it. Amazing when your up there to see just how tall she is and then to look down and see over the town of Butte. Awesome. The chapel lovely, all the names...could use better updated in order of death dates...rather confusing...but still fun to go over and see. Loved seeing all the memorials inside her base also. A...

Haven't you been curious about the glowing white statue on the hill overlooking Butte? Take this very nice tour, learn the story in an exciting video screened in a special room beside the Attraction headquarters at the Butte mall, ride in a van or larger passenger bus out of town and up the steep, winding private road to the statue....

We took the tour up to our Lady of the Rockies on a Saturday afternoon. Yes there is an impressive statue that means a lot to the people of Butte. Its genesis and construction (well-relayed in a visitors' video) lets you know why it is so important to the community. In addition however, the ride up is an experience all... More
