Missoula County is seeking ideas that protect the historic LaLonde Ranch, one of the oldest buildings in the county built in the 1870s. Barbara Martens with Missoula County Projects says the county is looking for suggestions on how the property might be restored and adapted to a creative, productive purpose that will help sustain the property’s historic value.

“We’re looking for ideas for the historic ranch site out at the Missoula Development Park which is located just west of Missoula and just off of Airway Boulevard,” Martens said. “It’s an old ranch site, it’s 6.1 acres, it consists of a two-story brick ranch house, two wooden barns, and a small log cabin that’s believed to have been built in the 1870s which puts it as one of the oldest buildings in Missoula county.”

Martens said interested parties are encouraged to attend and tour the site at 5404 West Harrier in Missoula for an open house and complete tour of the site.

“The county is going to be hosting an open house at the historic ranch site this Thursday, August 7, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and we encourage all interested parties to attend and tour the site,” Martens said. “What the county is looking for is ideas and suggestions for how the property might be restored and adapted to a creative, productive purpose that will help sustain the property’s historic value.”

For more information visit Missoula County’s Development Park website to view the request for ideas, maps, and photos of the property.
