Get to know The Sawyer

Connecting Missoula’s Past, Present and Future


Old Sawmill District is nothing short of a rebirth for 46 acres along the Clark Fork River, in the heart of Missoula, Montana. Once a booming sawmill complex, this property long known as the “mill site” has sat vacant since the early 1990s—unused and unsightly, but rich with history and potential. It’s time to realize that potential.

Sawyers were tradesman who would cut and shape timber in turn-of-the-century sawmills. Through the knowledge of their craft, they would help build, grow and connect their community.

At The Sawyer, we hope to inspire students in Missoula to learn new crafts, cut new pathways and connect the community in the same way. At the hub of the trail system, The Sawyer is located within walking distance of everything happening in downtown Missoula such as farmers markets, music venues and restaurants. Living at our apartments in Missoula, MT means being surrounded by a vibrant community.
