The Hauser Mansion is offered for first time on the open market. Exchanged only three times in a private capacity. A captivating history intertwined with Montana's own narrative and built in 1885 by Samuel T. Hauser, Montana's first territorial governor.
The same German artists that created some of the glasswork in St. Helena cathedral created some of the glass panels in this home. Other pieces are Tiffany stained glass. Clearly, this home was meant to be a showstopper. According to the official listing on Realtor.com:
In 1913, the Catholic Diocese of Helena acquired the property and in 1969, Governor Tim Babcock and his wife, Betty, purchased the mansion and revived it to its former grandeur. Twenty-nine rooms, nine bedrooms, a sitting room, an office, nine fireplaces, five bathrooms, and carriage house.
