Well, we are at it again. Jim and I purchased the 33 Bar Ranch which is across Highway 83 up Barber Creek. As the name suggests, it was built in 1933 by the Wilhelm Family. There are some great stories in the book I mentioned “Voices of the Swan” in an earlier post. Unlike the Lindbergh Lake Lodge, we do not have photographs of the original structure. We are working with Nick Fullerton, an architect from Bigfork, to imagine what this place was like back in the 30’s. We are also recreating the original homestead that was built in 1911. Nick was also the architect who restored the Lindbergh Lake lodge. Any stories or pictures you might have of the 33 bar would be greatly appreciated.
