About Us

Republic’s Chamber of Commerce wants everyone to know how special it is here – and that we welcome guests! We want to share the beauty and unique isolation of  our community by inviting visitors – and thus bring in much needed commerce and employment.

Republic boasts nice lodging, several restaurants and a host of resorts at nearby Curlew Lake. We have a rail trail that reaches from Republic to Canada (some portions are scheduled for new surfacing). It is very popular for wintertime cross country skiing. We have a world re-renown fossil center – visitors worldwide come to visit our Stonerose Eocene Fossil Museum – you even get to dig your own fossils – and if you find a rare one, it may be named after you!
