National Register of Historic Places in Anaconda

National Register of Historic Places

Along with nearby Butte and Walkerville, Anaconda’s compelling history story completes the narrative of one of the most dynamic and colorful mining regions in the United States, justifying its inclusion in the Butte-Anaconda National Historic Landmark District in 2006 — one of the largest such historic districts in the country. 

Beyond the National Historic Landmark District, acknowledging the need for and importance of preserving its own significant built and cultural heritage over the years, the Anaconda community, in partnership with other preservation advocates, pursued the listing of significant properties and neighborhoods in the National Register of Historic Places, the nation’s official inventory of buildings, sites, and structures worthy of preservation. Today, there are five historic districts along with 27 individual properties in Anaconda listed in the National Register. (Excerpt from page 8 of the ADLC 2021 Historic Preservation Plan)
