The Stumptown Historical Society (Whitefish) was founded in 1982 by a group of individuals committed to preserving the history of Whitefish, Montana and the Flathead Valley for the present and future. Since its inception the Society has grown with members from all parts of the USA and Canada.
Adjacent to the Amtrak waiting room is the Whitefish Museum which has many fascinating railroad and community artifacts and information.
Whitefish was carved out of the wilderness when James Hill moved the Great Northern division point here from Kalispell in 1904.
We are located at the train station and explore Whitefish’s roots.
