The Copper King Mansion,[2] also known as the W. A. Clark Mansion, is a 34-room residence of Romanesque Revival Victorian architecture that was built from 1884 to 1888 as the Butte, Montana residence of William Andrews Clark, one of Montana's three famous Copper Kings. The home features fresco painted ceilings, elegant parquets of rare imported wood, gas and electric chandeliers, ornate hand-carved fireplaces and stairways and stained-glass windows. The mansion was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.[3]

The Copper King Mansion has been privately owned, operated, and occupied by the Cote family since 1953. The home is currently operated as a Bed and Breakfast, with rooms ranging in price from $105 to $200. The website is thecopperkingmansion.com. Guided tours are available during the summer tourist season, or by appointment during the winter months.

The Copper King Mansion is referenced in the book about Clark's daughter, Hugette, Empty Mansions by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell, Jr.
