Also see . . . Ragsdale House -- Flathead Beacon. Sometimes simple designs – in simple forms – can yield dramatic results. Indeed, Kalispell has its share of Craftsman-style bungalows (or Bungalow-style Craftsmans, if you prefer). Yet the Ragsdale House at 825 Second Ave. E. may seem deceptively simple. The home bears the name of Howard Ragsdale, who built the home in 1909. Ragsdale was a blacksmith by trade, and also assistant chief of the Kalispell Fire Department.
