    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Missoula is a rapidly growing city of about 70,000 (up 22% since 2000) located at the intersection of Interstate 90, U.S. Highways 12 and 93, and Montana Highways 200 and 474 in Missoula County in Southwest Montana. Three rivers and five mountain ranges also converge here. Missoula is the second most populace city in Montana, after Billings, and was established in 1860 as Hellgate Trading Post. In 1866, the town moved west along the Clark Fork River and became Missoula Mills, shortened to the current Missoula shortly thereafter. Fort Missoula was established in 1877 and the Northern Pacific Railway arrived in 1883. In 1893, Missoula was chosen as the location of the first university in Montana. Evidence has shown human habitation of the area since at least the Folsom People (some 10,000 years ago) and a number of Indian tribes have called the area home since then. Mining also played a large part in the development of Missoula.

    Jeanette Rankin (first woman elected to the U.S. Congress); actor Dana Carvey, and director David Lynch are amongst those with ties to Missoula. Missoula is the county seat of Missoula County which was established in 1860. The Missoula County Courthouse is a beautiful example of the Classical Revival style of architecture and was completed in 1908 by the Gibson, Williams & Oliver Company. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It's nickname is "the garden city " It's a student town and have some good breweries here.

    Missoula has a number of historic districts with many buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. There are 8 districts and over 60 individual locations in Missoula listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
