Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Belmont Hotel was located at 430 North Higgins Avenue in Missoula, Montana, and was in business from 1911 to 1972. For the most part it operated as a railroad hotel, offering, for example, in 1927, services such as steam heat, electric light, telephone service, hot and cold water baths, and reasonable rates by day or week. The establishment had numerous proprietors; however, Mrs. Lena Walker, a.k.a. Mrs. Lena Smith managed the hotel for most of the period of this collection, from 1932 until 1956.
