Whether you’re wanting to know about the miles of underground mine workings in central
Montana or the towns where the miners lived, Jerry Hanley is the fellow to ask.

Jerry comes by his knowledge of central Montana mines and ghost towns, particularly Maiden,
quite honestly. You see, his grandfather arrived in Maiden in 1895 and spent his life mining there.
Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Jerry has been mining in the area for over 46 years.

The presentation will be accompanied by the new Ghost Towns and Gold Mines brochure and map.
Come join Jerry for his lively, informative presentation.
