Welcome Mullanites!

The Mullan Road Conference returns “home” to its birthplace where the St. Regis John Mullan statue was rededicated in 1989. From Friday May 29th through Sunday May 31, 2020, plans are underway to host next year’s conference. Note that this is not Memorial Day weekend, which is one week earlier. Put us on your calendar.

The theme of the conference is “A Long Winter at Cantonment Jordan”. We will have a meet & greet Friday evening, and the Saturday speakers will be at the St. Regis Community Center, including keynote speaker Keith Petersen from Boise, who wrote the book “John Mullan”. On Sunday there will be a bus tour spanning the 76 miles of the Mullan Road within our County. Mineral County is the midpoint for the 624 mile long Mullan Road, so we hope to draw a crowd from both east and west.

Around February details will be updated to this website and a brochure with a registration form created. In the meantime, questions can be directed to members of the Mineral County Museum: Sue McLees 822-4974, Kay Strombo at 822-4626, or email the Museum at mchs1976@blackfoot.net.

See you soon!
