1001 Worden Avenue
Constructed in 1921 at the northwest corner of Phillips Street and Worden Avenue to replace the public school originally built to serve Northside children in 1891, Whittier School is a three-story brick building with a gable-shaped centered parapet (low retaining wall at edge of roof). The parapet displays a top visually broken up by slots, creating what is known as a battlement. The building also features a two-story-high entry-way with large side pilasters (decorative columns of shallow depth). While no longer serving as a public school after 1985, Whittier continues to serve the Northside as a center for public meetings and the entire community as headquarters for Missoula's Head Start Program.
