The Mill House, Unit B (one of 4 individually owned condos) resides in an 1890s common western vernacular commercial structure and is one of Livingston’s last remnants of early logging and milling industries. Built and operated by one of the town’s first entrepreneurs, Emanuel Goughnour, the space was first established as Livingston Lumber Company.
Mr. Goughnour supplied most of the lumber, lath, shingles, plaster, doors and fixtures for buildings in town, including the courthouse. Over the years he continued to buy more land, most of which was acquired from the Northern Pacific Railroad. He served as Mayor of Livingston in 1908, and is credited with prompting the town to pave its downtown streets.
The vacation rental building housed Ryan Fruit Company from 1922 – 1934. A later phase was as R D Novelty Company, a business that sold juke boxes and games to “local watering holes and Red Light houses”. It later housed Dollarhide, then Adams Exploration Company.
It is a well-known structure in Livingston, easily identified by the large mural on the side of the building, which advertises: “Coal: Best on the Market”, and was painted ~ 1908.
Acquired through Sotheby’s in 2007, this original Goughnour building is now available for luxurious, loft-style lodging!
For your convenience there is a lock box on the brick by the door to the unit. Guests have access to the whole house and the beautiful common yard area with adirondack chairs and bbq grill.
