Smoke Stack State Park

The old Anaconda Copper Company smelter stack, completed in 1919, is one of the tallest free-standing brick structures in the world at 585 feet. The inside diameter is 75 feet at bottom, tapering to 60 feet at the top. In comparison, the Washington Monument is 555 feet tall.

The stack dominates the landscape like the Company once dominated the area’s economic life. Since the smelter closed in 1980, the stack has become a symbol of the challenges that face communities dependent on finite resources.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the stack may be viewed and photographed only from a distance. Interpretive signs that detail its history are located in the viewing site near Goodman Park.

Access is limited to the viewing/interpretive area only and is free. There is no visitor center or staff at this location.

Washoe Park Trout Hatchery

A Great Place to Visit

The Washoe Park Trout Hatchery visitor center consists of a display pond of trout, interpretive center, and a live stream aquarium. The hatchery grounds are open during daylight. This Hatchery maintains the state’s only native westslope cutthroat broodstock.

The Trout Hatchery’s Mission

The Washoe Park Trout Hatchery in Anaconda was the first state-run hatchery built in Montana. The hatchery is located at the east end of the historic Washoe Park. The hatchery was built in 1907 with the help of local industries. The manager of the Washoe Smelter at the time was a Fish and Game Commissioner. He obtained support from the legislature for funding the construction of the facility. The Butte, Anaconda and Pacific Railroad granted the four acres for the hatchery site and water rights were donated by the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. Over the years, the hatchery has raised many species of salmonids including Arctic grayling, westslope cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, golden trout, lake trout and brown trout. Currently, the hatchery manages the state’s only westslope cutthroat broodstock. The founding population of today’s broodstock was taken from tributaries of Hungry Horse Reservoir and the lower Clark Fork drainage in 1984 and 1985. The hatchery produces over one million eggs per year. About 200,000 of these eggs are kept at the facility for future brood and production fish that will be planted in lakes across Montana to support recreational sport fishing. Eggs and fish from Washoe Park Trout Hatchery are also used for restoration stocking as part of Montana’s westslope cutthroat trout conservation program

 

Washoe Theater

This extravagant movie palace was built in 1936 with Art Deco furnishings, murals, and ornamentation in silver, copper and gold leaf. The Washoe, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Sites in 1982, was designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca an esteemed theater architect whose credits include Pantages Theaters in California, the Seattle Coliseum, and Orpheum, Palomar and Paramount theaters in Seattle. Interior decoration in the Art Deco style was supervised by Nat Smythe of Los Angeles, who with the help of Colville Smythe, completed the interior murals. The Smithsonian Institute has ranked it fifth in the nation for its architectural value.

The Washoe was built at a time when motion pictures were at a peak. Several large and elaborate Art Deco movie palaces were built around the country, most of which have been destroyed. Thus the Washoe is one of the few remaining theaters of its kind in the country. Pre-dating the Washoe on this site was the Margaret Theater, named for Mrs. Marcus Daly in 1897. The Margaret was sold in 1926 and reopened in 1927 as the Sundial Theater. The Sundial was destroyed by fire in 1929. Not soon after, the Washoe Amusement Company formed to lobby local citizens for the reconstruction of the theater on the site, and the Washoe soon came into being. It cost $200,000 to build.
