The historic Moon-Randolph Homestead, part of Missoula’s open space system, is open every Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., from May to the end of October (fire danger and weather permitting). Visitors are welcome to picnic in the apple orchard, tour the historic farm buildings with one of the trained volunteers, or just nap under the black locust trees. During the rest of the week, the homestead is open for research, youth programs and artistic pursuits. The North Missoula Community Development Corp. works with Missoula Parks and Recreation to manage the homestead for the public. Call 728-9269 or e-mail email@example.com to inquire about volunteer opportunities and programs.
Access: You can reach the homestead on foot from trailheads on Greenough/Duncan Drive. If you bike or drive, follow Scott Street north over the bridge, take a left onto Rodgers Street, then turn right on Shakespeare Street (which becomes Coal Mine Road). Turn right immediately after you go under the interstate and then turn right again after the second cattle guard. The homestead discourages car visitors, but if you do drive please park on the right side of the road before the cattle guard.
