Monument · Landmark
Our Lady of the Rockies is a 90-foot (27 m) statue built in the likeness of Mary, the mother of Jesus, that sits atop the Continental Divide overlooking Butte, Montana.

It is the fourth-tallest statue in the United States after Birth of the New World, The Statue of Liberty, and the Pegasus and Dragon. The base is 8,510 feet above sea level and 3,500 feet above the town. The statue sits on private land and is lit and visible at night.

The statue was originally conceived by Butte resident Bob O'Bill in 1979 as a tribute to the Virgin Mary following the recovery of his wife from cancer. Later, the statue was additionally dedicated to "all women, especially virgin mothers."

  • What a neat place! I had heard of "our Lady of the Rockies," but I never knew what it was. It was incredible. No matter your religion you can appreciate this site. Just like I appreciate the Buddha on top of a Mountain in Thailand. Just beautiful and spiritual.
