National Register of Historic Places
Anaconda combines urban culture with quick access to a cornucopia of Montana adventures. In town, relax in beautiful Washoe Park, swim in the outdoor pool, picnic, or visit the fish hatchery. The Old City Hall Copper Village Museum and Art Center features a wide variety of art and an impressive display of historical artifacts from Montana's past. Catch a performance at the Washoe Theater, or just wander around the ornate Art Deco building, one of the few remaining theaters of its kind in the country. Make sure to roam around Anaconda's four historic districts: the Anaconda Commercial Historic District, the Butte, Anaconda and Pacific Railway Historic District, the Goosetown Historic District, and the Westside Historic District. Also, a visit to The Stack, the old Anaconda Copper Company smelter stack and one of the tallest free-standing brick structures in the world, is a must when staying in Anaconda.
Once you've tasted some of Anaconda's rich culture, head for the hills. The Pintler Scenic Route goes from Anaconda to Philipsburg and offers an unparalleled view of the rugged Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness Area. Feeling adventurous? Hike and backpack in the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness. Camp on Georgetown Lake or in Lost Creek State Park. In the summer, golf on the Old Works Golf Course, Montana's only Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. In the winter, Anaconda is the perfect place to stay while rushing down the slopes of the Discovery Ski Area or slicing through the cross-country trails of Mount Haggin. Prefer après ski? Fairmont Hot Springs has outdoor and indoor swimming pools, outdoor and indoor mineral soaking pools, a waterslide, hotel and three delicious places to eat.
Anaconda has something for everyone. From art and performances to minimalist backpacking, you can find it in Anaconda.
