Description 

This building predates 1884, the year The Butte Miner, the city's oldest newspaper, occupied the premises. The Miner, mouthpiece of Copper King and U.S. Senator William Andrews Clark, left for other quarters in 1906. It continued to publish until 1928.

Butte florist James King acquired the building when The Miner departed. He partly demolished the structure and erected a unique two-story building with green-glazed brick facade and exotic Moorish revival arched windows.
