Unique Butte, Montana stained glass courthouse dome needs restoration

July 08, 2013

A unique stained-glass dome capping the rotunda at the Butte-Silver Bow County courthouse in Butte, Montana is in danger of being lost without a restoration. The glass pieces are no longer really connected, just resting against each other held together by gravity. And, over time, the pieces have morphed from convex to concave.

A lot of the dome’s problems, says Jules Mominee, the owner of Mominee Studios of Evansville, Ind., came about with time and by a “fairly ad-hoc installation initially.” The “mishmash” resulted in a less-than-uniform construction, says Mominee, who is evaluating the structure for a restoration.
