* The Conrad Mansion is a recipient of Flathead Electric Cooperative’s Community Education Grant for its educational history tours.

From in 2023-2027, educational history tours will be FREE for all students and teachers. 

*Flathead Electric Cooperative’s Community Education Grants are funded by unclaimed capital credits. “Capital credits” refers to the money not-for-profit Flathead Electric Cooperative returns to its members when it brings in more revenue than is needed to operate. Some of those capital credits go unclaimed, usually because members move away without updating their mailing addresses. When capital credits go unclaimed for five years or more, Montana law allows that money be used for educational purposes, such as supporting the Conrad Mansion’s educational history tours.

It’s unreal to think that Teddy Roosevelt himself stayed in the Conrad Mansion all those years ago. The tour is incredible and the staff is friendly. I’ve been many times and it never gets boring. ”

SPECIAL TOURS

In addition to regular season tours, the Conrad Mansion offers several special tours and events throughout the year.

Lettie Conrad and The Wild West Tour

The Lettie Conrad tour honors Kalispell’s Founding Mother Lettie Conrad. The story of Charles Conrad has been well-told by Kalispell locals and visitors since the 1890s. Mr. Conrad’s adventures and accomplishments echo through to this day as we live and work in the town he helped found. But, as the old saying goes, “behind every great man, there’s a woman,” and this special tour tells that story. Learn about an Edwardian woman’s life in Montana while touring through the Mansion’s twenty-six rooms.

The Lettie Conrad Tour is $25.00 and is by appointment only. Please call 406-755-2166 to schedule a Lettie Conrad & the Wild West Tour
