The Missoula Mercantile will be demolished.
Judge Robert Deschamps recently ruled against Preserve Historic Missoula and our co-plaintiff's appeal of the City Council's decision to grant a demolition permit for the Missoula Mercantile. Missoula's most historically-significant building is coming down. It was an exhausting process and we are disappointed in the outcome, but we will be forever thankful for the support from the countless number of our fellow citizens who made it clear that preservation matters in our community.
We need your help to pay the balance of our legal fees so that we may return our focus to promoting our mission. PHM is committed to proactively educating the public and our elected officials on the value of our shared historic resources. If we are diligent, perhaps we can avoid a repeat of the Mercantile debacle in the future.
