Missoula and Western Montana


Old Sawmill District is located in the middle of one of America’s most talked-about mid-sized towns. Home to a major university and about 100,000 happy residents, Missoula consistently finds itself ranked in major lifestyle magazines’ top places to live. And the people who live here show it.

Missoula …. an award-winning city. Missoula has won numerous awards, including Most Fitness-Friendly city (2017), top 24 coolest towns in the USA, ranking 9th in National Startup Rates, top 5 best cities for active retirement (2016, 2017), Bicycle-Friendly Community Gold Status (May 2012), Runner-Friendly Community Designation (September 2011), Best Overall Marathon by readers of Runner’s World Magazine (as listed in the 2010 Marathon Guide), 100 Best Communities for Young People (2005, 2006, 2007), a Great Small Place for doing business (ranked number 2 of the top 25 small cities for doing business in 2004), and many more.

The University of Montana

One of Missoula’s claims to fame is The University of Montana, a campus of more than 15,000 students and dozens of top-notch programs. A true member of the community, the U of M offers Missoulians a wide array of cultural and athletic events, jobs and community spirit. Come fall, Grizzly Football fever grips the whole town. Old Sawmill District residents will be especially pleased to know that Washington-Grizzly Stadium is a short walk up the riverfront trails from their new home or office.

A thriving business community

A great place to live is also a great place to work. That’s why Missoula’s major employers never have trouble filling out their ranks. Two full-service hospitals, an international airport and a growing professional community make Missoula one of the top candidates for new residents and their businesses.

What’s your sport?

Dozens of outdoor pursuits are within walking distance of Old Sawmill District, providing a unique four-season playground. The adjacent Clark Fork River is a favorite spot for kayakers, anglers, and dog owners. In 10 minutes, you can be fly-fishing the legendary waters of the Big Blackfoot River, hiking through dense forests and atop rocky ridgelines, or cycling down a meticulously maintained singletrack. And Montana Snowbowl’s 2,600 feet of vertical are only a 20-minute drive away. Benefits like these are why, over the years, Missoula has attracted a fair share of adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts.
