Sacajawea Hotel Joins Historic Hotels of America®
WASHINGTON, DC – March 6, 2013 – The Sacajawea Hotel in Three Forks is pleased to announce it has been inducted to Historic Hotels of America®, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The Sacajawea Hotel is one of more than 240 hotels and resorts throughout the country that is recognized by Historic Hotels of America for preserving and maintaining its historic integrity, architecture and ambiance.
“We are delighted to welcome The Sacajawea Hotel, built in 1910 to Historic Hotels of America.” said Lawrence Horwitz, executive director of Historic Hotels Worldwide. “This colonial revival style hotel is close to Yellowstone National Park and several other well known recreational landmarks, which makes it an ideal place to visit for history buffs and outdoor enthusiasts alike.”
To be selected for membership in Historic Hotels of America, a hotel must be at least 50 years old, listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places or recognized locally as having historic significance. The Sacajawea Hotel has been listed in the National Register of Historic Place since 1980.
The Sacajawea Hotel is rich in history, architectural integrity and western hospitality. The Sacajawea Hotel was built in 1910, as the Milwaukee Railroad extended their line through Three Forks, Montana, providing transportation for tourists visiting Yellowstone Park. The Sacajawea Hotel was dealt an economic blow when the railroad ceased running in 1980. Over the years, this historic hotel has undergone several face-lifts, the most significant in 2010, when a local farming family purchased the hotel. It now has been renovated and preserved with blending luxury and Western flare. The hotel has a five-star restaurant, Pompey’s Grill, is where visitors can find and enjoy amazing Montana beef. Live music and poker is found every Friday and Saturday in the Sacajawea Bar.
About the Sacajawea Hotel
The Sacajawea Hotel celebrated its 100th year in grand style. In 1910, the grand hotel was built during the busy days of the Milwaukee Railroad. Three Forks was a main stop for the railroad, which extended the line to nearby Gallatin Gateway, then became the final whistle stop for tourists visiting Yellowstone. The Sacajawea Hotel was dealt an economic blow and the tumultuous relationship between the Hotel and the Railroad finally ended in 1980 when the historic Three Forks tracks were pulled up.
29 guest rooms fill the hotel, all having been redesigned with luxury in mind. Each room features natural light, comfortable beds and luxurious linens and amenities. The Sacajawea Hotel has two different restaurants for guests to choose from. For fine dining, visitors can stop into Pompey's Grill and try any one of the great Montana dishes offered. Big Certified Angus Beef Steaks are on the menu, all hand-cut by the Executive Chef who fires them hot on a wood smoke grill. History is happening at the Sacajawea and everyone is invited to experience it first-hand. For more information, please visit www.sacajaweahotel.com
