Also see . . . Riffo/Pierce Residence -- Flathead Beacon. The house was built in 1901 and for much of its early history, it was home to more than a few tenants at a time. Perhaps the most recognizable among them was Marion B. Riffo — one of Kalispell’s prominent early architects. Riffo designed high schools and hospitals, and structures of all sorts in between. Arguably, his residency here must have influenced his work (even if in ways we’ll never know). (Submitted on November 27, 2020, by Barry Swackhamer of Brentwood, California.)
