Hamilton is located in the lush, agriculturally rich Bitterroot Valley of southwestern Montana. The town is the central trade area for hundreds of small farms, ranches and orchards that fill the valley. It is also home to the Daly Mansion built in the late 1800s for Marcus Daly, one of Montana’s colorful “Copper Kings.”

The two-story mansion, situated on gorgeous tree-lined grounds, features 42 rooms and seven fireplaces. The scenic Bitterroot River and impressive peaks of the Bitterroot Range run more than 60 miles along the entire length of the valley.
