A Little Bit About Missoula
Missoula is settle at what used to be the bottom of Glacial Lake Missoula. Before any European settlers the lane was used by the Kootenai, Pend d'Oreille, Blackfeet, Salish and Shoshone tribes. The first European settlers came with the Lewis and Clark expedition. Missoula came from the Salish name for the Clark Fork River - the river that runs through the city.

Missoula is known for its fishing, floating and anything to do on the river! With the Clark Fork flowing through the town you are never short on outdoor adventures. With hiking trails, including the M trail, there are plenty of places to explore.
The Montana Scene location currently resides in the Montana Building on East Broadway. In 2019 the Missoula location will move to the new Missoula Mercantile. The Mercantile was built in 1877 and has been empty since 2010. The renovations have been in the works for a few years and we are so excited to be a part of the revitalization of this historic building.
