The Northern Rockies Heritage Center (NRHC) was established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation in 1993 to preserve part of the remaining historic property at Fort Missoula, a former military post originally located on two hundred eighty acres of secluded valley floor bordering the Bitterroot River in western Montana.\n\nOwned and operated by the U. S. Army since 1877, the facility was closed in 1994, under the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC). The U. S.

The original¬†NRHC¬†Operations Plan was approved by the Montana State Historic Preservation Office in April 1995. All buildings under¬†NRHCownership are on the National Register of Historic Places.\n\nMission\n\nThe mission of the¬†NRHC¬†is the preservation of the heritage and the integrity of historic Fort Missoula. The Directors of NRHC have pursued this mission through adaptive re-use of the buildings on our campus, repair with historic preservation in mind, and awareness of the needs of the community. The¬†Board of Directors and Staff¬†of¬†NRHC¬†recognize the uniqueness of this historical resource and desire to bring together many fields of study in developing the Center. We have an interest in connecting history, geology, and geography through studies in aspects of military science, the Native American presence, how extractive industries affected the growth of the West, agriculture versus urbanization, immigration, transportation, local culture and other topics of interest.\n\nVenue\n\nProvides full use Heritage Hall (T-2), Villa (B-30), and beautiful Parade Grounds as venues for weddings and community events.
