Long Description:
For most of its life this building has been a hardware store, though under three different ownerships. Recently it has experienced a rather abrupt change, becoming a candy store. And a great candy store it is!

Walker Commercial Company

Prominent Missoula architect A. J. Gibson designed and built this two-story commercial building in 1905, at a cost of $20,000. The fine design includes a metal modillioned cornice and panels with a full height glass storefront and polished granite skirt below. The Walker Company operated stores in both Philipsburg and nearby Granite, selling dry goods and hardware. The Golden Rule handled similar merchandise at this location in the 1920s, and Philipsburg Hardware carried on the same tradition beginning in 1932.
