The House of Bair tells the story of one of the most remarkable families of the early 20th century.
The Bairs built a dynasty in the small ranching community of Martinsdale, Montana. They left behind a legacy of philanthropy and, displayed in their ranch house, a vast and invaluable collection of American and European art and antiques.
The Bairs left their home as a museum to the people of Montana---a seemingly simple request that ultimately divided friends, sparked numerous lawsuits, and made national headlines. Rostad details the fight of the community to save the ranch museum and uphold the wishes of these beloved and colorful figures in Montana's history.
