About the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust
The Daly Mansion was purchased by the State of Montana in 1986 through the Montana Estate Tax Forgiveness Act, in conjunction with a loan from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is operated by the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust (DMPT), which was started in 1986 by a band of courageous citizens determined to save history. The Mansion was first opened to the public in May 1987, after being closed and boarded up for over 45 years following Margaret Daly's death in 1941.
In partnership with the University of Montana, the State of Montana leases the Mansion and approximately 46 acres of grounds to the DMPT. The DMPT is charged with the full financial responsibility of the Mansion which includes salaries, maintenance, and operations costs.
The DMPT does not receive any regular operational support, at this time, from either the State or the Federal Government.
"The Daly Mansion Preservation Trust is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the Daly Mansion, its buildings, grounds and the history they convey. It is a center for education, cultural and community activities."
