Learn about Granite Mountain Fire

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park (stateparks.mt.gov) welcomes you to the third edition of its Friday Evening programs will be held this Friday, June 9th from 8 to 9pm.


On June 8th, 1917, 410 men were lowered into Granite Mountain mine shaft for another normal, tiresome night shift. However, this shift would be much different from the night before. It is only fitting that we hear about this tragic tale again for its 100th anniversary.


Join Tom Satterly, to hear the story of that fateful June evening. Tom is a good friend of the parks, who comes out and volunteers annually at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park, so we are very excited to have him back for this legendary story.
