    Town: Troy History

    Former President Teddy Roosevelt's initials can be found on the side of the current city hall building... Because of the deep ravines, dense forests and the steep mountains that characterize this area, the southern loop of the Kootenai was known as the Montana Wilds. Its ruggedness along with the fear of Indians kept it unsettled until gold was discovered in the mid 1860s. But not until the Great Northern railroad establish a freight division on the current town site, did it really begin to flourish. http://www.cityoftroymontana.com/history.html View full record
  3. Lewis and Clark came through the Missoula Valley in 1805, but it wasn't until 1860 that Europeans settled here (although a Jesuit priest, DeSmet, opened a mission south in the Bitterroot Valley in 1841). http://missoula.montana.com/history.html View full record
  4. The Virginia City Preservation Alliance was founded as a non-profit association in the spring of 1994. Its mission is to preserve, restore, and display structures and artifacts related to the history of Virginia City, Montana, to tell the story of the western mining frontier, and to protect the integrity of the local community. Activities of the VCPA include the restoration of the "Hangman's Building," the custodianship of the "Robber's Roost" property, sponsoring educational programs; including the very popular summertime Victorian-era balls. The Alliance also publishes a quarterly newsletter which provides a wonderful resource of articles on the history of the area. Those interested in joining us in our efforts may become a member through a modest annual contribution. For more information, contact us at: P.O.
