Innkeeper Carol Klinker extends a warm welcome to her 1914 historic two story home conveniently located just off Interstate 94 in Forsyth, Montana just 100 miles east of Billings and 45 miles west of Miles City at exit 93 and 95.
Klinker purchased the home in 1997 to house the Hysham Echo newspaper and her photography business. The summer of 2003 she added the bed and breakfast to her list of businesses occupying the house.
The house was built for Joshua P. McCuistion, a prominent Rosebud County rancher and businessman. McCuistion was involved in a number of Forsyth businesses and real estate activities.
Work began in April, 1914, when McCuistion built a garage (since razed) on the lot, and the Forsyth Times-Journal announced that a contract “For a fine residence” would soon be let. The newspaper’s May 25th issue noted that L. P. Wahl had begun work on the home, which “will have all the modern conveniences and will be one of the most costly in the city.”
The home was later occupied by Whit and Elsie Carolan; Whit was a local lawyer and County Attorney, and Elsie was a well-known music teacher.
In 1980 David Lloyd and his wife purchased the home and lived there during the time he was superintendent at the Forsyth Schools. While living in Forsyth he was doing some writing in his leisure time. The story grew on him and he got his first book done in time for the Montana Centennial in 1989.
