Superior is a town in and the county seat of Mineral County, Montana, United States. The population was 812 at the 2010 census. Superior was named after its founders' hometown of Superior, Wisconsin in 1869. The post office was established in 1871 after Mineral County became the site of one of the largest gold strikes that helped settle the West. In the 1860s and 70s, several thousand miners converged on Cedar Creek to earn their fortunes. Long after that strike played out, mining remained a mainstay of the economy. Mining, along with the development of logging and United States Forest Service activities contribute to the area's interesting history.The town made history again in 1908, when the Superior Hotel received the first Bibles to be placed in hotel rooms by The Gideons. Today a plaque on Mullan Road W. marks the spot.This small town offers a break from interstate travel and an introduction to area history in the Mineral County Museum.
