The Homestake Mansion
108 Fairview Avenue
Lead, South Dakota 57754
The Homestake Mining Company, owned by the famous Hearst Family, built the Homestake Mansion in 1933. The 27-room mansion retains the elegance of the period in its unique Tudor architecture. It is located in the city of Lead, just three miles south of Historic Deadwood. After two superintendent residences were lost in 1880 and 1896 to ground subsidence, the "Big House" as it became known, was built to serve as the new residence for general managers of the Homestake Mine. While in use, the mansion was the site of lavish social entertaining. In 1979, a new general manager decided not to occupy the mansion. It was then used for fine lodging, weddings and receptions, family reunions, meetings and corporate retreats.
The present owners continue to host all events, but no longer offer lodging. The ambience of the mansion interior, the surrounding park setting and the encompassing Black Hills is unsurpassed in the area. This is an extremely popular site for the ceremonies and receptions. There are two spacious "Great Rooms," one on the main level and one on the lower level; each can seat 70 to 80 guests. Outdoor weddings allow for seating of 300 or more. There is a beautiful patio off the elegant formal dining room and expansive lawn space where the mansion tent and furnishings can be set up.
