History

A Charming Little Inn EST. 1964 - Rich In History!

The Lewis & Clark Motel of Three Forks and, our Second Location, The Lewis & Clark Motel of Bozeman are with us today all because of one man’s desire to build. William J. “Bill” Sebena is the man behind the architecture, design, and construction of both properties. He is and always will be the heart and soul of the Lewis & Clark Motels. A True Original founded by William J. Sebena, and with much pride, his daughter Lisa keeps the L&C tradition a Three Forks tradition! We are grateful for and attribute our success to our unique place, our loyal guests, the Three Forks community, and our mantra of good old-fashioned customer service!

The Lewis & Clark Motel of Three Forks was the first of the two and opened in 1964. Celebrating over 50 years in hospitality and continuing to serve the community with a nice homey place to get a good night’s rest. Not many folks know that the main hotel portion has tremendous history. The main building was previously part of the Old Milwaukee Railroad depot located on the North end of Main Street. It was built shortly after 1908 which would make it over a Century old! Bill transported the main building down Main Street back in 1964 by way of railroad ties! He did the renovations necessary on the interior to turn it into a business that would be a prominent part of the community for many years to come. To this day we continue the tradition of running the Motel as a time-honored “Mom & Pop” Motel similar to those found on Historic Route 66.

The Gathering Place at the Lewis & Clark in Three Forks was constructed in 1998 and includes The Ballroom, Lounge and Dining Room. We specialize in hosting special events, large groups, weddings, and other occasions. Call to learn more about special event space rental and catering. It is an amazing space with lots of good karma! The Gathering Place is also a place you can go to listen to some Ella Fitzgerald or any classic old-style music and sip on a delicious Martini.
