The Missoula County Courthouse was built in 1908 and occupies an entire city block. The courthouse contains 8 murals by E.S. Paxson. Edgar Samuel Paxson is probably best known for his painting of 'Custer's Last Stand' finished in 1899. In 1906 he moved his studio to Missoula from Butte and in 1912 began a group of murals depicting early Montana history for the Missoula County Courthouse which were finished in 1914. The eight paintings can be viewed from 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.
