Fairweather PorchFairweather LobbyThis historic property was first deeded in 1863, and has served various owners as an "Eating House", Butcher Shop, Saloon & Hotel, and Dormitory. Known as the Anaconda Hotel/Saloon, the property was purchased by Charles and Sue Bovey in 1946. Renamed for Bill Fairweather, the building was remodeled and reopened for business in 1946.

Although the Fairweather Inn is far different from the simple 1863 restaurant that is preserved within its walls, the history of this building spans the Montana Gold Mining days from 1863 to 1935. Located in the heart of Virginia City within walking distance to all attractions, entertainment, and restaurants.

On the top floor antique beds represent the late period gold mining years when the Fairweather was a dormitory.
