Description 

"South Butte was home to miners, small businessmen, and workers who rented and owned the districtís modest dwellings. This one-story Queen Anne cottage, built circa 1897 with a front entrance and bay, well represents the late-Victorian period housing that characterized the neighborhood. The first owner, a cobbler by trade, had his shop on the property. He also did some mining on the side, and built the home at odd angles around his mining claim. A basement entrance to the mine shaft, according to local lore, allowed the clandestine removal of gold." - NRHP/Montana Historical Society plaque
