Anaconda is a decent sized town of about 7600 (little changed since 2000) located along beautiful Montana Highway 1 just west of Interstate 90 in Deer Lodge County in Southwestern Montana. The town got its start when Marcus Daly one of the “Copper Kings” built a smelter near here and recommended founding a town named “Copperopolis”. That name was already in use so Daly accepted a recommendation of “Anaconda”, in 1883. The first socialist elected to public office west of the Mississippi was the mayor of Anaconda in 1903. Famous people, including: Lucille Ball, Bounty Hunter “Papa” Thorson and several politicians and sports figures have ties to Anaconda. Anaconda has been the county seat of Deer Lodge County since 1896 following Silver Bow and Deer Lodge. Deer Lodge County was formed as part of the Territory of Idaho then was designated one of the original 9 counties for the Montana Territory when it was formed in 1864. The Deer Lodge County Courthouse was placed on top of a hill at the end of Main Street and was designed by architects Charles F. Bell and John N. Kent using the Neo-classical style of architecture and was completed in 1900. The Deer Lodge County Courthouse is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Anaconda has a couple of nice veterans’ memorial honoring all veterans of the nation’s military; one located by the courthouse and one in Anaconda Park. I feel it is important to remember the sacrifices made by our nation's veterans and their contributions to our freedom and our way of life.
