The foundations of the Northwest Montana History Museum were first laid in 1894 when the 22,000 square foot Richardsonian Romanesque Central School was completed in the growing city of Kalispell. Since 1999, the Museum has continued the Valley’s commitment to education. Engaging exhibits and one-of-a-kind artifacts tell the story of the region’s history, including the settlement of Flathead Valley, the American Indian tribes of Northwest Montana; the vanished town of Demersville; and pioneer Frank Bird Linderman. Schoolbell Books & Gifts on the museum’s first floor offers a great selection of Montana history books and Made-in-Montana gifts. Restored classrooms in the old Central School have been converted into elegant rental halls and are available for groups and private gatherings. A variety of year-round educational programs and community events ensure the Northwest Montana History Museum continues to be a place where the past is present.
