The Daly Mansion Archives volunteers bring history to the public every spring at a series of Saturday morning lectures.

The free Spring Speakers Series starts Saturday March 18 at 10 a.m. in the Trophy Room on the first floor of the classic building northeast of Hamilton.

The summer home of Cooper King Marcus Daly, the building opens for tours in May, but the spring series lets you in early to hear some of the valley’s history, much of which has been researched in the building’s archives.

The 2017 schedule:

  • March 18 – The Strong Daly Women – highlighting Margaret Daly, Daly daughters Molly and Hattie and Margit Sigray Bessenyey.
  • March 25 – How the Daly Mansion was Saved 30 Years Ago – The Daly Mansion Preservation Trust worked to make the mansion a public center for history, education and community activities.
  • April 1 – Jeannette Rankin – American Conscience – Re-enactor Mary Jane Bradbury will bring Rankin “back to life” in a special presentation.
  • April 8 – Major Charles Rawn – Re-enactor Dr. Robert Brown will portray Rawn, who founded Fort Missoula and was part of the Nez Perce War of 1877.
  • April 15 – In the Winners Circle – How three Montana men made history with Thoroughbred horses, including Marcus Daly, Noah Armstrong and Samuel Larabie.
  • There is limited seating for the free sessions. Please call the Mansion at (406) 363-6004 – ext 4#.
