Its relatively mild weather, proximity to well-known natural attractions, and family atmosphere make it a popular city for settling down. Its rich history also attracts visitors; among its many claims to fame, Missoula was a stop on the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1805. It has come a long way since its original settlement in 1860, when it was a simple trading post known as Hellgate Village. The development of major roadways, along with the foundation of the University of Montana in 1895, helped make Missoula the proud city it is today.
