9780917298899: Montana Mainstreets, Volume 6: A Guide to Historic Missoula

The Montana Mainstreets guidebook series focuses on the history and architecture of Montana towns. Based on State Historic Preservation Office records, this book provides windows to the past, pointing readers to the buildings, historic sites, and parks that act as monuments to Missoula's history. Detailed maps, historic photographs, and lively prose help these guides bring Montana's history and architecture alive.
Explore the history of one of Montana's most interesting communities. Situated west of the Continental Divide, the town of Missoula was founded in 1860 as a trading post. Supplying miners with produce, flour, other trade goods, and later with lumber was Missoula's early raison d'etre. Its designation as county seat in 1866 and the arrival of the Northern Pacific in 1883 and the Milwaukee Road in 1909 cemented the community's role as a center of commerce. Its economy diversified further when it became home to the state university--now called University of Montana--in 1895 and the U.S. Forest Service's regional district headquarters for the Rocky Mountains in 1908.
With a flourishing downtown district and well-preserved historic homes, Missoula's streetscapes today reflect the town's abundant history, thanks, in part, to a successful historic preservation program that has preserved the community's rich architectural legacy. Missoula's buildings, parks, and historic sites are waiting to be discovered, on the streets of Missoula and through this fascinating guide.

From the Back Cover:

Situated west of the Continental Divide, the town of Missoula started in 1860 as a trading post called Hellgate that supplied miners with flour, trade goods, and later lumber. Its designation as county seat in 1866 and the arrival of two railroads (the Northern Pacific in 1883 and the Milwaukee Road in 1909) cemented the community's role as a center of commerce. Missoula gained prominence when it was selected as home to the state university in 1895 and the United States Forest Service's regional district headquarters 1908.
With a flourishing downtown district and well-preserved historic homes, Missoula's streetscapes today reflect the town's abundant history and rich architectural legacy. Missoula's buildings, parks, and historic sites await your discovery, on the streets of Missoula and through this lively guide.
