Charles M Bair Family Museum

Sheep Herders Paradise 

The Museum is located outside Martinsdale, MT on highway 12, about 30 miles from White Sulphur Springs. The Bair Ranch Estate was Charles M. Bair's retirement home and is filled with rare items from around the world. The ranch is a result of many sound investments, hard work, and smart moves. Even to this day the Bair fortune is helping many small communities in the LBA with full-ride, in-state scholarships given out to the top 3-4 students of each graduating class in Harlowton and White Sulphur Springs. His family also donates large amounts of money to hospitals, museums, libraries, mental health programs, youth organizations, arts, and music.
