Kalispell is located in the beautiful Flathead Valley and is situated near Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake and The Big Mountain Ski and Summer Resort. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Glacier National Park’s majestic snowcapped peaks can be seen from the downtown area where a well-established main street circles Kalispell’s courthouse at one end. Due to a mild climate and abundant precipitation, the Kalispell area not only produces livestock and grain crops, but also such moisture-loving crops as sweet cherries, seed potatoes, Christmas trees and peppermint. Another important industry is wood products. Kalispell is a lively and friendly town with lots of shopping, art galleries, a historic walking tour and many festival events throughout the year.
In 1864, John Bozeman led a wagon train over Bozeman Pass into the Gallatin Valley, where his friends W. J. Beall and D. E. Rouse staked out the townsite for the city of Bozeman. Located in this beautiful mountain valley, Bozeman has become one of Montana’s major tourism and agriculture centers. It is also the centerpiece of the fertile Gallatin Valley, a large architectural area. Another important part of this thriving community is Montana State University. Established in 1893 as Montana State College, MSU has become the largest unit of the Montana University system, with around 10,000 students. MSU offers a diversified curriculum with emphasis on engineering, agricultural studies, and its film and television school.
