Location: Hamilton, Mont.
Price: $2,950,000
The Skinny: Tammany Castle, located an hour south of Missoula, Mont., was built at the turn of the century by copper king Marcus Daly, not for himself, but for his most prized racehorse, Tammany. At the time, horse racing was among the most popular of American pastimes and Tammany was remarkably successful, leading his generation in prize money earned. As his prized horse's career was winding down, Daly built this impressive "castle," where Tammany lived out the remainder of his days. Now converted to residential use, the 5,400-square-foot brick spread sits on 12 acres, down from 28,000 acres in Daly's day. Next door a private club founded by Charles Schwab—offering golf, tennis, and a swimming pool for its membership—that takes its name from Marcus Daly's original tract, Stock Farm. Given the minimal acreage, this slice of Montana history is offered at a very un-Schwab price: $2.95M.
