Kalispell, Montana is the county seat of Flathead County, and the gateway to Glacier National Park. The city was founded by Charles Edward Conrad, a banker from Fort Benton, Montana, who formed the Kalispell Townsite Company using his own funds, platting and beginning to sell lots by the spring of 1891, and incorporated as a city the following year. Kalispell is situated in the Flathead Valley, about thirty miles from Glacier National Park and just over twenty miles from Hungry Horse Dam. Kalispell is the largest city in northwestern Montana, located northeast of Kila, north of Somers, west of Creston, and south of Whitefish and Columbia Falls. Notable people with ties to Kalispell include Chuck Baldwin, who was a presidential candidate for the Constitution Party, as well as John Edward Erickson, the eighth governor of Montana, L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, and Eugene Peterson, who produced an idiomatic translation of the Bible known as The Message.
