The Daly Mansion was purchased in 1886 by Marcus Daly, an industrialist, on 46 acres of beautiful land near Hamilton. The mansion was remodeled in 1889 and again in 1897, to become a Queen Anne style home. The last renovation was completed in 1910 to resemble a Georgian-Revival style home.

Tour this historic 24,000 square foot home to view the 25 bedrooms, five Italian marble fireplaces, dining room, sun room, music room and trophy room.

The Mansion's exhibits showcase Daly's life beginning as an immigrant to becoming a copper magnate.
