Kit Carson Mountain Men

The Kit Carson Mountain Men is a non-profit 501 (C-3) organization created to perpetuate the traditions of the old west and the spirit of the pioneers.  

Among other activities the Kit Carson Mountain Men provide living history programs to local functions such as parades and county fairs, demonstrating the life and times of the mountain men circa 1840’s.

The Kit Carson Mountain Men have two major events every year. The first is the sale of fireworks for the 4th of July.  The majority of these funds is distributed in the form of scholarships to local high schools.

The other major event is the annual Kit Carson Mountain Men Wagon Train and Days of 49 Celebration.  The five-day wagon train which travels through our local communities provide an opportunity for school children and local residents to visit the horsemen and women and see the authentic covered wagons.  Each night the public is invited to the encampment site for casual entertainment and BBQ.  The highpoint is the Sunday Kiddies’ Parade on Main Street, Jackson featuring the wagon train.  Admission is Free to all events.
