Organization History

The Mineral King Preservation Society is a nonprofit organization established in 1986 to promote the preservation of the natural and historic assets of the Mineral King area in Sequoia National Park. On October 27, 2003, a major portion of Mineral King’s cultural resources were listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Mineral King Road Cultural Landscape District. 

Since its inception, the Mineral King Preservation Society has engaged in research, restoration, preservation, and interpretation of Mineral King’s unique cultural resources in collaboration with the National Park Service. These resources include archaeological sites, historic cabins, mines, mining settlements, mill sites, historic dams, trails and roads, and artifacts associated with human activity in Mineral King. The Society’s collections include documents, photos, artifacts, and data records.
