HELENA – The Montana Club is currently working on restoring some of their century old windows.
Two of the twenty-four stained glass windows on the sixth floor of the club are currently getting worked on.
The Montana Club was established in 1885, the windows were installed in 1905.
The two windows will cost $12,000 in total to restore and the club hopes to continue to restore the others as funds become available.
Executive Vice President of the Montana Club Lee Shubert said that the club’s mission is to preserve the property as best as they can because many parts of the building are irreplaceable.
“The stained glass that’s in there, you can’t find it anymore,” said Shubert, “It was created in the 1890s and it doesn’t exist anymore.”
Bovard Studio Inc. is performing the restoration and said the project should be done by the end of the week.
The Montana Club noted and thanked Charlene Porsild, PhD of the Montana History Foundation for helping secure the funds that made the restoration possible.
