Feast your eyes on a rare piece of history nestled in the picturesque Sweet Grass County, Montana - just twenty-three miles north of Big Timber. This remarkable treasure, with dates carved in stone (yes, you heard that right - literally!), dates back to 1872. And let me tell you, it's a real beauty. Back in the day, weary travelers on the Bozeman-Miles City stage line would stop by the "halfway house" for some much-needed rest and recuperation. And as if that wasn't impressive enough, the original abstract shows that a formal transfer to its first private owner was signed by none other than President Grover Cleveland in 1909. Talk about a piece of American history! Now, fast forward to 2012, and the property has been lovingly preserved and transformed. A contemporary addition joins the south wall of the original stone house, providing unobstructed views of the stunning White Beaver Valley. And if you thought the views were impressive, just wait until you see the manicured bluegrass lawn that gently gives way to pastures and prairies, all of which are traversed by a mile of spring creek and two year-round springs on 400 acres. Trust me when I say that elk, deer, antelope, and upland game abound. But that's not all. The property also boasts a passively solar-heated hanger and a grass airstrip, perfect for welcoming your super cub. And for those of you with horses, the rustic barn, corral, and shed provide a cozy home for your four-legged friends. In short, the past and present converge in this private, tranquil, one-of-a-kind property. And if you're lucky enough to call it your own, you'll be the proud owner of a piece of American history that's been transformed into a modern-day oasis. So what are you waiting for? Come and take a look for yourself!
