The first settlers of the Flathead Valley arrived by steamboat, traveling across the vast Flathead Lake to form small outposts by its beautiful north shore. After the Great Northern Railway laid tracks through Kalispell in the late 1800s, this small and promising settlement embarked on a trajectory of rapid growth, flourishing into a new regional center for commerce and community. Kalispell has since seen downturns and upswings, a turbulence that comes with the territory for rural towns. But the hardworking residents of Kalispell stayed true to local livelihoods, and their determination to uncover Kalispell’s legacy as the beating heart of Northwest Montana has, in recent years, manifested. With a resurgence of boutiques, art galleries, fine dining, breweries, festivals, and venues, as well as its international airport, nationally renowned community college, and excellent health care infrastructure, Kalispell today is a Western American success story. And with an invested group of downtown business owners, the main thoroughfare is blossoming into a welcoming, walkable city center. Many of Kalispell’s storefronts and homes—as well as entire neighborhoods—are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This visible heritage is a reminder, to all who pass through Kalispell, that this up-and-coming city has roots far deeper than they might imagine.
