Location History:

Upon visiting Butte, Montana, it’s easy to think back to 1864, when the vibrant town sprung forth from a mining camp. You can also imagine the influx of migrants and miners who looked to strike gold or silver.

Those historic buildings could tell many tells of debauchery as any sort of vice was acceptable in earlier times. You may also want to learn that Butte contained one of the last red-light districts in the country.

As you walk south on Idaho Street, you will eventually stand in front of a large, ominous building with a cross delicately perched at the top. Say hello to those who wait for you inside Old St James Hospital!

In 1881, five Sisters of Charity arrived from Leavenworth, Kansas and founded the Old St. James Hospital. The mission of this hospital was to provide medical care and services to the poor.

As a response to the many injuries and deaths associated with mining, illness, and criminal acts, a second floor was added to the hospital in 1889. Further additions followed in 1896, 1906, and 1915.

An expansion in 1906 filled the need to open a nursing school that could help accommodate the growing workloads that many staff faced. The old building was completely rebuilt and remodeled in the 1940’s.

In 1962, Old St. James Hospital became abandoned as operations moved into the Butte Memorial Hospital. Businesses moved in and out until the 1980’s, when the building became apartments.

Access to the Old. St. James Hospital was rarely ever granted, as it served as storage since the early 2000’s. The building is now open for events and Ghost Hunts USA has the chance to take you inside!

5th Annual Dillon Witches Brigade

Just wanted to let you know an exciting tip that we've become privy to since the last full moon. There have been whisperings amongst the Beaverhead County witches and their familiars that the 5th Annual Dillon Witches Brigade is scheduled again, as always, the night before Halloween, 10/30 at 6p. The witches are said to meet at Depot Park across the brewery and ride their witchy bicycles around, but who's to say exactly what will happen since we're dealing with real witches. As always, the witches welcome everyone (warlocks, young witches, old witches, wizards, tiny witches, large witches, etc etc etc) and they do NOT charge a fee.



Monday 10/31/2022
