MISSOULA — The Board of Trustees for the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula has announced the recipients of its annual “Preserving Missoula County’s History” grant program.

“Preserving Missoula County’s History” grants were introduced in 2002 when voters of Missoula county approved a $2 million levy for the museum.

  • Five Valleys Land Trust: $3,000 for the Stabilization and Interpretation of Pete’s Cabin.
