Built in 1883
123 North Main was constructed in 1883 and
damaged in the 1886 fire which destroyed
much of the commercial district of Uptown
Butte. The building was one of the few that
was not structurally damaged so remodeling
the building only cost $5,000.00. At that time
the cast iron store front was added.
Over the years many business have operated
out of 123 North Main. In 1905 the Womans
Protective Union, WPU predisor to todays
Hotel and Restaurant Employees International
Union and the nations first Union for Woman
headquartered upstairs. This organization
was founded in Butte in 1893 so that
woman's rights would be protected in the
In the 1910's the Centennial Brewing
Company had its offices located in the upper
floor of the building. Clerke's Clothing Store
was on the main floor. At this time the metal
cornice was installed which joined 123 with
125. The Bohemian Buffet, a bar, was also
located in the basement at that time. With the
advent of prohibition the Bohemian Buffet
closed and was turned into a Speakeasy. The
upstairs also served as a corset factory at one
time and later a house of ill repute with a
passage door into the upstairs of 125 which
has been preserved.
Our store has operated as antique shop for
the past 16 years.
