Winifred, Montana population 200, has new world-class hotel, needs workers

August 29, 2017View for printing

A friend thought I was joking when I said to meet me at the Winifred International Suites/bowling alley/steakhouse/laundromat to start a Missouri Breaks adventure.

No indeed.

It's right there across Main Street from the community center/museum/fire hall/ambulance barn/city hall/post office.

The slash is key in small towns, and in Winifred, pop. 200, many of the people, like their buildings, have many roles.

Unemployment is not an issue here, north of Lewistown, Frank Carr said. (Montana's overall rate is 3.8 percent.)

"Hopefully we can find more people to work," he said. "We're trying to keep our town from drying up but at the same sense we're up against the wall with workforce. Everyone is working and we need more people."
