Brit Clark

Executive Director

After earning a degree in History  from the University of Montana I retuned home to Kalispell where I have been honored to serve as the director of the Conrad Mansion. I am passionate about preserving the Conrad Mansion and sharing Montana history with the public.  

When not at work you can usually find me hiking in the mountains with my husband and hound dogs. 


Sorcha Brooks

Museum Assistant

I’m Sorcha (pronounced Sor-sha). I’m from Bozeman and I studied Art History at MSU. I hope to teach guests about the art and architecture of the Conrad Mansion. I love all the clever and functional design additions. My favorite rooms are the Fernery and the Antique Room. Outside of my job, I’m an avid skier and am currently working towards a private pilot’s license. I’m so glad I get to work at this cool house. Come say hi!

I watched with fascination the renovation of the Conrad Mansion in the 1970s while working at the Conrad bank. Never did I dream that I would be doing tours there after my banking career. It is a beautiful vintage home and fascinating family story to share! I love it!

I’ve been a guide at the Mansion for 9 years now and it never gets old!  There are so many unexpected things to see in addition to the beautiful woodwork, glass, fernery plants, and original furniture. Come and see for yourself sometime soon!


Hank Handford

Mansion Docent

I was born a few blocks from the Mansion, grew up in this neighborhood, and with the exception of about ten years, have lived here, walking the same streets and breathing the same air as the Conrads did. I feel like their history, their home and their legacy are woven into the fabric of my life. Sharing their stories with visitors is an honor and a delight.

I started working at the Mansion when I retired to be a full-time Gramma.  Then my kids moved and I needed something to do. I have been at the Mansion for 17 years and love this fine old house and almost feel a close connection to this Conrad family.  I learn something new every time I come in. Best job ever!

Christa Handford

Mansion Docent

I am a middle school English teacher during the school year and a docent at the Mansion in the summers. I grew up in the area, and my first time touring the Mansion was on a field trip in the early 80s when I was in elementary school. I fell in love with the Conrad Mansion then, and now my husband and I live in the neighborhood and walk our dog here every day. It is a magical place, and I feel lucky to be able to spend time taking my own students and other guests on tours of this beautiful, historic home.
