Historic MT hot spring loses fixtures to thieves

BOULDER - A historic bathhouse and hotel in southwestern Montana is lamenting thieves who broke in recently and made off with three antique light fixtures believed to have been installed by a millionaire miner and banker nearly a century ago.

Boulder Hot Springs says it will pay a $1,500 reward for information leading to the return of the fixtures, which disappeared in late July.

General manager Kerri Kumasaka says she believes they were added during a 1910 renovation project by former owner and Butte millionaire, miner and banker James Murray.

She says, "We're just heartbroken they're gone."

Two of the fixtures were taken from the building's old dining room and a third from the historic lobby.

Buildings at the hot springs date back to 1863.
