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 & EVENTS

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 will be by appointment only through 2022. Please call 406-755-2166 to schedule a Lettie Conrad & the Wild West Tour

Although women first borrowed suit jackets from men in the 1890’s, the man’s suit first appeared three hundred years earlier in the late 1600’s. Those late 1600’s suits only resemble the current version of the man’s suit in that they consisted of three pieces: a loosely fitted coat (jacket) and waistcoat (vest) ending at the knee, and the precursor to trousers (pants) in the form of full knee length breeches, like a woman’s divided skirt. Two schools of thought exist about the development of the man’s suit. One is men’s fashions stagnated with those plain suits, and the other is men adapted to modern clothing much earlier than women. More functional than their previous clothing, the suit allowed men to transition into what eventually became white collar work. Likewise, when women began to participate in activities outside the home in the 1890’s, they also adopted the more functional suit, but less stagnant with more variety than the men’s versions. To provide a context, this exhibit opens with a look at three men’s coats like those worn in the 1890’s. In addition to women’s versions of the mans tailored jacket, the remainder of the exhibit includes a 1907 bolero jacket, two 1915-1923 suits with long loose jackets, a late 1920’s cardigan suit, a 1940’s dinner suit, a 1960’s Chanel knock-off suit, and a 1960’s “space age” pants suit.
