Stories at the Strong

Victor’s historic Strong Mine and hard rock mining will be the center of attention on Saturday, October 5. Stories at the Strong: A Day of Tall Tales & Mining History will be held at the 1899 mine site.

Check in at the gate at the beginning of the day.

The day will feature a chance to see the surface plant and hoist house of the Strong Mine. Two Mile High Mining Company owner Jim Watson will provide a historical presentation.

Folks will also get a chance to see the Strong Mine’s hoist operate and visit the hoist house.

During the storytelling some of the mining district’s well-seasoned miners and long-time residents will conjure up memories and weave tales about their experiences and the old days.

The day will also include, weather allowing, roasting s’mores over a fire.

The Victor Elks will cook and sell hot dogs burgers, and brats on the grill. The proceeds from the lunch go the Elks Lodge.


$10 per person

Children under 5 free.

The entrance fee includes all of the day’s events and entry into the drawing; the Elks lunch is an additional charge.

Tickets can be reserved on line at or purchased at the museum or at the gate the day of the event by cash only.
