Washoe Brewery Building Architectural History

From National Register Plaque: Washoe Brewery (1200 E. Park Avenue) An architecturally impressive landmark and gateway to Anaconda s east side, the Washoe Brewery symbolizes the private enterprise that flourished in this company town. The imposing Italian Renaissance-inspired brewery with its signature corner tower is a bold reminder of an industry important to Anaconda s residents. It also represents an intriguing, unsolved corporate mystery. In 1904, the upstart manger/vice president of the Anaconda Brewing Company (ABC) suddenly resigned his position to establish a rival brewery. Despite William Haltonhoff s resignation, he oddly remained ABC s manager during construction of the $80,000 Washoe Brewery, completed in August of 1905. The ABC purchased the Washoe in December for $81,000 and shut it down. The building was subsequently long unoccupied. After Prohibition in 1933, the Washoe reopened under A. J. Tuchscherer, producing Rocky Mountain Beer until 1955. The brewery s boardinghouse and bottling works are now separate properties, but the gable-front house and wagon barn remained intact for 100 years. The brewery itself, little changed over time, is of primary significance to Goosetown’s historic neighborhoods.

Property Description

The Washoe Brewery Building, built in 1905, is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Washoe Brewery (by architect JG Link) is today the only surviving industrial plant in Anaconda that was not associated with the Anaconda Company, and the last of several local breweries. Anchoring the Northeast Corner of Goosetown (Park and Madison), this massive 13,500 square foot, four-story facility borrows heavily from Italian Renaissance and Romanesque design with its dominating corner tower, round-arched windows, and heavy brick cornice. The building itself is brick construction. The total square footage is 13,293. The main floor has 10,000 total square feet of retail space. A private residence is currently located on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors.
