It is always interesting seeing the history of your city. This is a great tour and fun to see how the Conrads lived.

This is a lovely old home with rich and fun family history. The grounds are lovely. Our tour guide was very young, nice - and knew her material well, but . . spoke so quickly that it was hard to follow. A couple of times people on the tour asked her to speak more slowly, but . . .it didn't... More

My daughter, mother and I visited the Conrad Mansion on Oct 11, 2014. It was a great tour with lots of the original household items. The tour guide was pleasant and well informed. I would recommend this attraction to anyone who appreciates history and antiques. Smaller children should be watched carefully as the house is full of prized possessions. I... More

We arrived in Kalispell on a trip to Glacier National Park. The day we got there, it was rainy and cold, so we decided to nix the park for that first day and instead take in a museum. Our hotel had a list of local attractions, so we made it to Conrad Mansion just in time for a tour. I... More

I have been on many house and mansion tours and this was one of the best. Our guide, Cyndi, loved the house and family history and our one hour tour turned into 2 lovely hours. The house has original furniture and clothing of the Conrad family for over 100 years. Guide shared the sad history that resulted in the house... More

So much natural beauty to see in the Kalispell area (Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, etc.) but don't neglect the tour of the home of the founder of the city, Charles Conrad. Built in 1894/1895, the architect, Kirtland Cutter, had cutting-edge ideas and Charles Conrad had apparently an open budget. The result is an extraordinary family home with features well-preserved...

This is the historic home of the city's founder and still has a very large percentage of the original furnishings. The family kept a lot of paperwork and receipts, so there is a wealth of information about the home. The woodwork is magnificent and the furnishings are quite lovely. If you like visiting historic homes you will love this one.... More

I can honestly say this is the best tour of a historic mansion that I have ever experienced. There are twenty-six rooms and we saw twenty-five of them. Our tour took almost two hours and our docent, Cindy, was extremely knowledgeable and had actually known the last of the Conrads to live in the house so had many anecdotes to... More

Our tour guide, Cindy, was thorough and delightful. She really knew the history of Charles Conrad, the railroad magnate from the 1800's. Tour lasted about 1.5 hours, well worth our time.
