The Granite Miners Union was a labor and social organization in the mining town of Granite, Montana. Granite is now a ghost town and the site of a state park [Granite Ghost Town State Park]. "Every business man as well as every resident of this whole district feels an interest in the success of Miners' Union day celebration. The day is looked forward to with an equal interest with any other holiday, and inasmuch as it is a day of recreation and rest for the men who risk their lives every day in extracting that which affords us all an existence, there is every reason why one and all should turn a helping hand toward the success of Miners Union Day. The proceedings of the day will commence with a grand parade of all members of the union; parade to start from the hall at 10:30 a.m., and march through the principal streets of the town headed by the granite silver cornet band." - The Philipsburg Mail (05/25/1893). Near fine photograph.
