Missoula's Most Endangered Historic Sites
Preserve Historic Missoula's 11 Most Endangered Historic Sites List is intended to generate a community discussion about the challenges that face historic sites, and to begin crafting strategies that ensure their preservation. PHM has produced two Most Endangered Lists, the first list was compiled in 2008 and the second list was prepared in 2009, and we are working on a third list to be released on PHM Night 2015. Since the publication of our two Most Endangered Historic Sites Lists PHM is proud to announce that several of these endangered properties have been saved, including the Missoula County Fairgrounds, the Bonner millworker's homes, and the Fort Missoula Post Hospital. Unfortunately, PHM regrets to say there have been set backs in our efforts to preserve our most endangered historic sites. PHM spent a considerable amount of effort in trying to secure passage of the Historic Preservation Ordinance which would have helped secure the future of our historic districts. PHM also spent a considerable amount of time assisting the community of Missoula with the efforts to preserve Lincoln School. Despite these set backs, PHM is dedicated towards preserving our most endangered historic sites.
