Post Office and Courthouse Extension – Missoula MT

Description

Originally the Missoula post office completed in 1913, the now-Federal Building was extended during the late 1920s to accommodate the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana. A second extension and annex — a New Deal project — was designed by Louis A. Simon of the U.S. Treasury Department and dedicated on October 13, 1937.

The building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

The building is still in use by the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana. It also houses the Hellgate Station post office.
