McCullough Home

402 South Third Street West, Missoula, MT

Description 

"The early development of Missoula’s Southside is well represented in this classic Queen Anne style residence, constructed in the early 1890s. Originally a single family home, stylistic features include the asymmetrical façade, clad in a mixture of stone, brick, and decoratively patterned wood shingles; gables and open porches; and arched, multi-paned windows. Longtime resident Dr. George McCullough came to Missoula in 1890 after completing graduate studies at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital. He and his wife, Mollie, moved into this residence in 1908. A past president of the Montana State Medical Society and the first vice president of the Missoula Trust and Savings Bank, the doctor is remembered by the medical community for his research on Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Mollie died in 1912, but Dr. McCullough’s grown daughter and her family later lived with him. Upon his death at age 80 in 1938, Dr. McCullough had maintained an active medical practice that spanned almost fifty years." - NRHP/Montana Historical Society plaque
