The Missoula Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) announces Missoula’s second year recognizing local Legacy Businesses!
The program recognizes businesses that were established in Missoula for 100 or more years and serves to call out longstanding, community-serving local businesses that so often serve as valuable cultural assets. The City intends that this registry of businesses be a tool for providing educational and promotional assistance to Legacy Businesses to encourage their continued viability, awareness and success. It also serves to promote Missoula’s heritage through an alternative lens, recognizing that our heritage is multifaceted, from businesses to music to buildings. Potential outcomes of the program include branding recognition, legacy business tours, walking maps, digital presence and partnerships with other Missoula entities and tourism.
Can you think of Missoula business which has been in operation for 100 years or more? Nominate that business now! This year the HPC will be awarding three businesses who have been an integral part the Missoula community for over a century.
