Missoula Art Museum – Carnegie Library Grand Entrance Restoration

Missoula Art Museum restored the grand entry to the 1903 Carnegie Library Building, preserving the historic building's architectural facade. The original stairs were altered in 2006 into sitting steps. In 2017 it was determined that the original entry should be restored. The sitting steps were removed and the original nine steps were rebuilt at great labor and expense. The MHF grant helped to restore the site back to its former grandeur.
