Butte Archives Takes over Chateau Building

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

The historic Clark Chateau building in Butte will now be run by the Butte Archives.

After cutting ties with the Butte-Silver Bow Arts Foundation, the county agreed to a temporary one-year deal with the archives to take over the building.

During the year, Butte-Silver Bow County will hold public meetings to see what residents would like to have in the historic building.

In the past the structure has hosted fundraisers, classes, and has always been a museum.

"Once we get that done, we'll focus on the needs of the building itself, and of course, the public process to determine the long term use," said Butte-Silver Bow County Chief Executive, Matt Vincent.

The Butte Archives will move exhibits into the chateau building immediately.

The Butte-Silver Bow Arts Foundation will be moving to the Venus Espresso House.
