Welcome to the Homestake Mansion

Homestake Mansion in DeadwoodThe Homestake Mansion was built in 1933 by the Homestake Mining Company at a cost of $200,000. The 27-room mansion retains the elegance of the period in its unique Tudor style architecture. It is located in the City of Lead, just three miles South of Deadwood.

After two superintendents’ residences were lost (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. Since then, it has been used for providing fine lodging, weddings and receptions, family reunions, meetings, and corporate retreats.

Deadwood Weddings at Homestake Mansion

This is an extremely popular site for ceremonies and receptions. There is a spacious “Great Room” on the main floor which can seat approximately 70 people, a beautiful patio just steps away from the elegant formal dining room and lots of open lawn space where tents can be set up.

The Mansion has four bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. In addition, the Carriage House has been transformed into a beautiful suite, complete with its own bathroom and kitchenette.

The bathroom in the Homestake Suite was actually a display at the 1933 World’s Fair. It was seen by the person in charge of building the house who immediately decided that THAT was the master bathroom for this house. It boasts a luxurious six foot tub accented by original Art Deco light fixtures and tiles, and a multi-head shower. This is truly a one-of-a-kind property that you have to see to appreciate. It can be rented by the hour or day, with a 3 hour minimum. Rates vary depending up your particular needs. Catering is also available.
