Also see . . . Spafford House -- Flathead Beacon. Building a home on the corner of Fifth St. E. and Sixth Ave. E. in 1895 was a bit like building a home in the country nowadays. OK, at least on the outskirts of town. As the name implies, the Kalispell Building and Loan Association bought the lot and “improved” upon it by building a home (which often increased profits quite handsomely). Such was likely the case when the home was built in 1895, a time when a horse and buggy wasn’t a nicety, but a necessity to traverse the muddy streets of Kalispell, particularly in the spring.
