Historical NoteReturn to Top
The Missoula Lumber Company was one of many businesses utilizing the vast natural resources of Western Montana to supply wood and construction products for the early urban development of Missoula and its surrounding communities. Founded in the late 1880s, the company served the Missoula region until 1914 when it was renamed the Largey Lumber Company after company president, Patrick A. Largey. The Missoula Lumber Company was favorably located on the corner of Scott Street and Stoddard Street in Missoula’s Northside Neighborhood, an emerging center for warehousing and light industry near the Northern Pacific Railway Yard. Sold and renamed in 1917, Largey Lumber Company became the Missoula White Pine Sash Company, which manufactured wooden window and door components at that location until 1996.
