A $42,427 WPA grant was used to improve Kalispell airport. According to Montana’s Big Timber Pioneer newspaper, the work involved “cement floors for the hangar, construction of a large warmup block, construction of three runways 400 by 2,600 feet, painting the hangar, seeding 60 acres to turf and incidental improvements.”
The airport is still in use today.
