Dumas Brothel Museum

Butte Montana

The Dumas, built as a brothel in 1890, was open as a house of prostitution continuously until 1982, making it the longest running freestanding enterprise of its kind in the United States. The Dumas is the only preserved building in what was once Butte's thriving red light district.

Saved from demolition by Butte native Rudy Gieck who bought the building and began its restoration in 1990, The Dumas is open as a museum featuring an old-time photography studio and tours.
