Also, Dan, if you go to the offices of the Missoulian newspaper, on South Higgins Avenue by the riverfront, they might/should still have (on microfilm?) an article they did on the Mosby house way back in the early, early 1980's. It might be worth stopping in there once just to research it.

What's interesting to me is that 'Artemos' is another street, downhill and a few streets to the North, of where this house would be.
