I’ve driven by the historic mission at St. Ignatius many, many times without being able to stop and actually enter the building. On a summer trip to Kalispell this year, I made a definitive plan to swing in and found a spectacular interior – delicately painted and softly illuminated by the large antique windows.
Apparently, the 58 murals were painted between 1901-1902 by an untrained artist who worked as a cook and handyman at the mission.Â
If you’re ever on US Highway 93 between Missoula and Kalispell, MT, I highly recommend stopping in!
