The Missoula County Courthouse was built in 1910 and occupies an entire city block. The courthouse contains eight murals by E.S. Paxson, who 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 courthouse. They were finished in 1914. The murals can be viewed from 8:00 to 5:00, Monday through Friday.
