FAQ

Are there any buildings left in Butte, other than the Clark Chateau and the Copper King Mansion, that relate back to the Copper Kings?

The Associated Charities of Butte was organized during the late 1990's "to help the worthy poor help themselves". While the early group focused on distributing food and clothing to the needy, the children's home at 542 Nevada soon became the focus of its energies. The present facility, The Paul Clark Home McDonald’s Family Place, was a gift from William A. Clark, in memory of his fourteen-year-old son Paul.
