Flathead County administrative offices are located at 800 South Main Street, Kalispell, MT 59901; phone: 406-758-5503.

Established in 1893, the county was named for the name given by settlers to several tribes of the Native American Salish Indians. The Indians had a custom of flattening the heads of infants by fastening a piece of board or a pad of grass upon the forehead, causing a flat appearance of the head after several months.
