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.
