Flathead County was created out of Missoula County in 1893 because of the long distance to Missoula. The county originally had about 8,500 square miles, but now has 5,256 square miles. Kalispell became the county seat in 1894.
Marriage records began to be recorded in the Flathead area in 1892, before the area became a county. In 1893 the county began filings of land, probate and court records. Birth records were added in 1895.
