Mullan Road/Mullan Tree

This began the saga of Mullan’s accomplishments in the west, which included the building of the Mullan Road, and he left an indelible mark on the area in more ways than one.

Mullan and his party celebrated July 4, 1861, not far east from Coeur d’Alene, leaving the Mullan Tree as a testimonial, an event which gave the name of Fourth of July canyon to that section of his route, immediately east of Wolf Lodge.

The name is in general use today although the travel way has been realigned several times and today, closely paralleling the route he surveyed, is a four-lane highway known as the Fourth of July link of U.S. interstate 90.
