An initial settlement here in 1887 named Demmersville was quickly abandoned when the Great Northern Railway chose a different Montana city through which to lay its tracks. Subsequently, however, businessman and banker Charles Edward Conrad formed the Kalispell Townsite Company with three associates and began selling lots in 1891. The first railroad car pulled into town on New Year’s Day, 1892 amidst a huge celebration. That celebration included the nailing of a silver stake into the center tie of the tracks – that stake was created from melted silver coins that had been donated by town residents. The town’s name is a Salish (Native American) word meaning “flat land above the lake.” The city is the county seat of Flathead County. Kalispell today is a thriving city that offers visitors endless opportunities for fun and adventure.
History buffs in particular enjoy touring the fascinating 1895 Conrad Mansion, which boasts over 90% of the original family furnishings! Another interesting historic site is The Museum at Central School, which is a great place to learn about the area’s history. Housed in the original Kalispell school, the building is an exceptionally well-preserved example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture. Art aficionados appreciate the Hockaday Museum of Art, which is housed in a former Carnegie Library; numerous art galleries in town also feature creative works. Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers delight in the abundant spectacular beauty and recreational activities available at Flathead Lake State Park, Glacier National Park, Lone Pine State Park, Wild Horse Island State Park, Thompson Chain of Lakes, Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, and the Bob Marshall Wilderness area. Restaurants and taverns welcome guests for a delicious meal – including local bison, elk, and yak, which can be washed down with a refreshing local craft brew or huckleberry milkshake!
