The Jersey is the only restaurant and bar on a long stretch of highway through the scenic eastern Montana prairie. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and was inducted into the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2017. In 1914, the building was originally the Wiley, Clark and Greening Bank. The bank closed in 1921 due to misappropriation of funds. In 1948, it began operating as the Jersey Lilly Bar & Cafe when it was purchase by Bob Seward, who was originally from Texas. It retained the original bank building character and charm, with the original tin ceiling, bank vaults and wooden flooring with the outline of teller cages still visible. Many of the original fixtures, including the back bar remain. The back bar was brought up on river boat from St. Louis to Forsyth in the early 1900s. It sat in Forsyth during prohibition before it was brought to Ingomar in 1933 in the back of a Model T. As the story goes, this is why there are scratches in the mirror. The sale will include equipment, furniture, antiques and decorative pieces. The new owner will receive the original Jersey Lilly Bean Soup recipe to serve along with the famous sheep herders hors d’oeuvres.
