WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU. ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS WE COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE, WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO IT.

Missoula County, Washington Territory was incorporated in 1860. Missoula County encompassed present-day Missoula and Deer Lodge Counties, as well as a good portion of land north and south of present-day Missoula County. Hell Gate Town, the county seat, was located at the confluence of the Clark Fork and Bitterroot Rivers.

In 1863, Missoula County reverted to the Idaho Territory when it was created in that year. Missoula County then shifted its boundaries to look more like its present-day boundaries dividing the Bitterroot Mountains from the Rocky Mountains. Missoula County became a part of Montana Territory when the territory was organized out of the existing Idaho Territory by Act of Congress and signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln on May 26, 1864. This early Missoula County was one of the eleven original counties of Montana Territory and consisted of part or all of the lands now occupied by the current Ravalli, Missoula, Granite, Mineral, Lake, Sanders, Lincoln, Flathead, and Glacier Counties.
