Babcock’s storage

Categories List:   
Address:
Butte, MT, United States, Montana, USA 59701
Year Built/Circa: pre-1884
Current Use: Museum for historic tours
Vacancy: Occupied
Historic Significance: Complex architecture in one of the few surviving commercial alley buildings in Butte. Associated with Babcock's and its successor, Mattingly's, prominent early businesses in Butte. Both were men's stores.
Description:

This three-story alley building and the overpass to 117 N. Main are both pre-1884. Babcock’s Hats & Furs was out of business in 1900, so the sign is at least that old. Ground level was carriage or auto storage; middle level was storage for the store across the overpass, and the top level was sleeping rooms accessed by a stair on the outside of the building, through a door in the far side of the overpass.
