Prospector Hall, Montana Tech of the University of Montana – Butte MT

Description

Then known as the Montana [State] School of Mines, the PWA granted $320,000 for the construction of a new dormitory.

The school’s website explains: “Construction of the Residence Hall began in 1935 with an appropriation grant from the Federal Emergency Relief Administration of Public Works. It was open for use during the 1935-1936 academic year. The main structure has four floors each with a student lounge. In addition, there are two wings, each with one floor. It was originally designed to house 110 students.”
