Description 

"KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS - The Butte chapter of this fraternal organization was founded in 1902 and its present quarters constructed in 1917-18. Architect Wellington Smith designed the three-story Renaissance Revival style building, which features “tapestry” brick from Helena and cast or artificial stone that was hand-carved and engraved. The building included a pool, track, ladies’ parlor, and a grand octagonal room with a twenty-five-foot domed ceiling. Situated between the business district and west side residential area, this spacious hall was one of the last buildings constructed during Butte’s final building boom of 1916-1918." - NRHP/Montana Historical Society Plaque
