Lakeside is located northwestern area of Montana, on Highway 93 on the west edge of Flathead Lake. Lakeside, so named because it is situated on the west shore and near the north end of Flathead Lake, is an area popular with tourists who come to sail or fish the lake and also those passing through on their way to glorious Glacier National Park.
Prior to the 1900's the town of Lakeside was called Stoner after John Stoner, the first postmaster, who built and operated a hotel where the creek that still bears his name flows into Flathead Lake. The name was later changed to Chautauqua, then Lacon, and finally, in 1920 to Lakeside. In early years, Flathead Lake was an important part of the trade route from Missoula to Canada, and steamers made regular stops here with passengers and freight.
