"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.

Butte is a quiet cool little town

I love Butte solely because it's quiet. The lady up on the mountain is very cool at night and you won't miss her. Montana is a great outdoors state!

No car access, roads are padlocked. Must take tour bus :( Can see from the highway but rather dissatisfied

We have always noticed the statue on our drive through Butte & wondered about its history. I found the website & booked a tour. It is a seasonal attraction. You meet at the mall office which is also a gift shop. There you will have a chance to watch a documentary movie about the vision & how she was built... More

The statue and view of Our Lady is grand. However be aware that making reservations means nothing. They will cancel on you, or you may show up and the place is closed. I believe the staff is volunteering and mostly over 70 so I won't complain that they don't know what they are doing. I would only go if you... More

Driving through Butte, it is easy to miss the hidden gem. Overlooking the town stands a 90-foot statue of the virgin mary, erected on the top of a mountain. Most people take a 3 hour bus tour to see this attraction. I elected to hike up the Maud S Canyon to the Continental Divide. It is about a 24 km... More

After viewing an introductory video in the Butte Plaza Shopping Center, one goes by van up the mountain to the east of Butte to the site of this statue. For me, the most meaningful part of the trip was the outstanding view of Butte -- the expanse of the community; the historic central district; and the immense mining works. On... More

Butte, Montana has friendly people with an air of freshness abounding in the mountains and streams. From the copper mine tour, then up the highway to Phillipsburg for an old skool soda and some sapphire hunting for your next or personal jewelry piece.

The story behind the Lady of the Rockies is a heart-warming one & it restores your faith in humanity. The Lady overlooks the city of Butte and her glowing beauty at night can be seen from all over. The video beforehand is very informative. I grew up in Butte so I already knew the story of how it came to... More

Don't skip this on your trip! The history of this beauty is remarkable! The tour guide was very knowledgable and full of trivia. The community of Butte is so very proud of The Lady, and justly so. View is breathtaking! P.s. Very bumpy ride if that is a concern.

So we went to visit Mary, and enjoyed the trip to Our Lady of the Rockies. The bus ride up and down is a bit hairy for older people or for people who are scared of heights and bumpy, unpaved roads. They offer a military discount but for only the person who has the military ID, not the defendants of... More
