Miners Ball - January 19, 2019

The Miners Ball was one of Platteville’s most anticipated annual social events from 1938 to 2006. The Friends of the Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums brought the tradition back to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville campus on January 19, 2019, as a fundraiser for the Museums.
