Henry Good Residence

East Side Historic District

Henry and Lena Nollar were the first owners of this Colonial Revival style home built circa 1925. A side-gabled clipped roof, centered portico supported by Tuscan columns, and arched entry handsomely define the style. Henry Good, whose first wife died of influenza in the 1918 epidemic, purchased the property with his second wife, Alice, in October of 1926. One of northwestern Montana’s major logging contractors, Good also ran a farm north of Kalispell that was considered an area showcase. This home served as their “in town” residence. The Goods lived here periodically, renting the home in their absence, until Henry’s death in 1944. Alice Good was a gifted musician and artist who taught in the Kalispell public schools before her marriage to Henry in 1920. According to her obituary in 1953, “Even before she could talk, she sang….” The interior of this exceptional 1920s home features “beautifully figured” gumwood doors and woodwork. The second floor reflects architect Fred Brinkman’s mid-1930s remodeling.
