Cultural Resource Management Service Across The Rocky Mountain West

Arthur Avenue Historic Survey

Western Cultural contracted with CDM, Inc. to conduct a historic urban survey for a interchange design project with the Montana Department of Transportation. The historic survey is located in a neighborhood adjacent to the University of Montana and the University Area Historic District, a National Register of Historic Places Historic District. The survey recorded and evaluated thirty residences that had not been previously examined and re-examined thirty-four residences within the University Area Historic District. The thirty residences were evaluated for the National Register of Historic Places following the University Area Historic District statement of significance. Architectural styles present included Tudor, Craftsman, Minimal Tradition, Colonial Revival, Greek Classical Revival and Arte Moderne. The residences were constructed in the 1930’s and 1940’s and demonstrated a solid retention of integrity. The historic research included a review of the Missoula City Clerk and Recorder’s Office records, Sanborn Maps, Polk City Directories, the Missoula City County Public Library, the historical photograph, newspapers, and map collection at the University of Montana.
