The London Free Press in Canada features Tammany Castle

The London Free Press, a division of Canada’s Sun Media group, features Tammany Castle, a Montana ranch for sale listed by Hall and Hall.

The London Free Press writes:

Tammany Castle occupies an iconic place in the history of horse breeding and the settlement of the American West.

Fully restored and converted to a luxury residence, this is the building created by “Copper King” Marcus Daly, a major figure in turn-of-the-century Montana, as the millionaire owner of the Anaconda Copper Mine.

In 1893, his favourite horse, Tammany, was pitted against Lamplighter, an A-list horse from the eastern U.S. Daly declared, “If Tammany beats Lamplighter, I’ll build him a castle.” Tammany won by four lengths, and this is his “castle.”

Tammany Castle is a 5,400-square-foot home with four bedroom suites, a conservatory, library and modern luxury kitchen. The “castle” overlooks the Bitterroot Valley from its bluff-top location. This enviable piece of Montana ranch real estate is listed at $2.95 million.

Hall and Hall is a ranch real estate company that emphasizes land stewardship.
