James H. Monteath, assistant manager of the Inter-Mountain Publishing Company and assistant secretary of the Aetna Savings and Trust Company, was the original owner of this lovely two-story home built of frame with brick veneer circa 1891. A graceful elliptical porch serves as focal point while open brick window arches, embellished with wood relief and eyebrow labels, enhance its elegant lines. Overlapping eaves with decorative brackets and sidelight of glass bricks at the front entry afford further ornamentation. Originally snug between its two neighbors, the home’s east wing was added circa 1916 when demolition of the residence at 837 West Broadway allowed expansion. This well-maintained vintage residence, constructed at the height of Butte’s first building boom, deserves a prominent place among the period homes of the West Side.
