You might not have any other reason to be in Ingomar, Montana, but this cowboy saloon makes it a worthy stop. The Jersey Lilly is on the National Register of Historic Places, with a pressed-metal ceiling, an old backbar, and outhouses in back. The menu features chuck wagon beans served in an enameled pan, plus a do-it-yourself plate of cheese, onion, sliced orange and Saltines called Sheepherder Hors d'oeuvres., The town dates to 1908 and once billed itself as the "Sheep Shearing Capital of North America." It went into decline after a devastating 1921 fire and the Great Depression. Only a handful of people live there.
