Mayer Building

Butte National Historic Landmark District

Rapid population growth during the boom years between the 1880s and 1910s necessitated the combination of housing and business space. This three-story masonry building constructed in 1900 on a choice corner lot provided owner Dora Mayer with upper rooms to let and ground-level space for the family business. Dora and her husband Max, an assayer, operated the Mayer Electric Company, which advertised: “Bring your motors to us … we will make them satisfactory.” Sensitive restoration of the building by the law firm of Corette, Pohlman, Allen, Black and Carlson has revitalized its fine façade and reaffirmed its prominence in the central business district.
