 D.I. Building

D.I. Building’s original name is Dillon Implement Building. The real beauty of the D.I. is its originality and its durability. The stone walls for the building are over a foot thick and were quarried about 30 miles away. The DI building was initially dedicated to producing horse drawn buggies and work wagons.  Some of the original structures such as ten foot tall sliding metal doors have been preserved and incorporated into the new building.  The D.I. Building is located in the heart of the Old Town Dillon. The building contains 32,000 square feet. It is within easy walking distance of the university, restaurants, microbrewery and all stores you need on a daily basis. The building was built in the days before there was concrete rebar foundation pillars. A tour of the basement of the DI is an amazing trip back in time. The building is supported with Roman-style triangular-shaped columns of stone and mortar. With its strong beauty, the D.I. Building has been through many earthquakes and other stresses from the environment and is still standing proud. It is an amazing treat to see the quality workmanship and the engineering that existed over 100 years ago. 

The D.I. Apartments offer 2 studios, 5 1-bedrooms, 3 2-bedrooms and 1 3-bedrooms with its glorious natural lights throughout the house on the second floor. With two stairways for access to these apartments, all of them have 14 foot high ceilings and tall broad windows. The views from the apartments vary from snow-covered mountains to “city street” views on the Glendale Street side of the property. We have worked hard to maintain its beauty with the original stunning hardwood floors that have been sanded and refinished. All of the units have individual air conditioners. The entire building is heated with a central eco-friendly natural gas steam system. This is the same system that has been used in Lower Manhattan in New York City for over a hundred years. We are proud to say that It is an excellent, clean and safe way to heat large buildings.

 Turret House

The cutest Turret House on the block was built by the first doctor in Beaverhead County. The doctor’s offices were located on the first floor and his family’s residence was on the second floor in beautiful three bedroom, one bathroom quarters. The inside of the property has been fully renovated for the convenience of other Dillon lovers.  

The Turret portion of the front room overlooks the Idaho Street and the Patagonia Building, where there is a ‘happening’ place of the town. From the 2nd residential floor, there is a circular dining room table in the Turret from which you have a beautiful view of the activities on Idaho Street.  You will feel as if you are in London or Greenwich Village looking out over other preserved historic buildings.

The Turret House reserved parking behind the Building for the tenants and a stairway to the upper apartment.

Get To Know Dillon, Montana

 

One of the highlights of Old Town is the amazing Beaverhead Historical Society campus.  Lewis and Clark and Sacagawea passed through the Dillon area on their famous journey. Sacagawea was part of the Shoshone tribe, located in the Dillon area.  The tribe welcomed Lewis and Clark and helped them through the steep western mountains into the Idaho/Oregon region.  That was the most difficult part of their journey. It is amazing to see the story of their great adventure and the display of historical artifacts.  Many families in Dillon have been there for a hundred years or more.  It is fascinating to meet current Dillon residents and trace their family history four or five generations through the Historical Society Museum and books that the museum has produced.

 Dillon is also a famous “cow town”.  It is the final stop on the statewide Dillon rodeo circuit. Every Labor Day, the town booms with the sound of horses, cows, cowboys and cowgirls coming to town for the big event.  It is a great end of the summer festival that is terrific for the entire family.
