Historical Time Period for Site

A Short Introduction to the Site

The Conrad Mansion is one of the most outstanding examples of luxurious living and period architecture in the Pacific Northwest. The home was built for Charles E. Conrad, a founding father of Kalispell.  The building itself remains unchanged since Spokane architect Kirtland Cutter designed and finished the home in 1895.

Tours of the Mansion include a history of Charles E. Conrad and how he made his fortune from humble beginnings, his impact on the local economy, and his efforts to save the buffalo from extinction.

The beautiful 26-room Victorian home is located in the East Side Historic District. 

Full Description of the Historical Site or Museum

Visiting the Conrad Museum today provides an extraordinary glimpse into the life of this wealthy pioneer family.  All three floors of the home have been completely restored to their original beauty.  Fully furnished, over 90% of the furniture, clothing, china, toys, books and documents are original to the house, offering the most complete example of privileged life in turn-of-the-century Montana.

The museum gift shop has a unique collection of jewelry, antiques, handmade items, history books, and toys.

Guided Tours on the hour starting at 10 am and last tour leaving at 4 pm.  $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $6 for students, and $4 for children- no reservation required - www.conradmansion.com
