Club 519

 
 

The Club 519, located on the top floor of the Professional Building and overlooking Miles City’s historical Main Street, offers a unique blend of the old and new.


The Building.  Inspired by the colossal White Exposition in Chicago in 1893, the building was originally designed as the First National Bank by the prominent Helena architect, Charles Sydney Haire.  Completed in 1910 and remaining basically unchanged, the exterior is a classic example of renaissance architecture in turn-of-the-century Miles City.


The First National Bank conducted business from this site for 52 years, until January 1962, when they moved just down the street, eventually becoming US Bank.  The building was sold to Dr. Bundy and later to William B. Dunn (a former lawyer).  The lower floors were renovated into downtown office space.  For a number of years, the upper level served as the home of the prestigious Miles City Club, Montana’s oldest social club, established in 1884.  Pierre Wibaux, who ran over 65,000 head of cattle and 300 horses in the area, and his friends, Teddy Roosevelt and the Marquis De Mores were frequent patrons of the club.


The Bar.  The bar, custom-built and designed by Mark Bradley, also contributes to the 519’s unique historical atmosphere.  The beautiful white oak was salvaged from the lobby of the old Ingraham Hotel, destroyed in the 1983 Elrobo fire.
