The historic site of *Tsei Zhele / Sinwaa Eex'i Ye / Conrad lies within the Traditional Territory of the Carcross/Tagish First Nation. Conrad is located on the west-side of Windy Arm "Tsei Zhele Mene" (Howling Rock Lake) - and was a traditional fishing, hunting and camping site used by ancestors of the Tagish Kwan people.  The community of Conrad was a short lived mining town established in 1905 by Colonel J.H. Conrad, the president of the Conrad Consolidated Mining Company. At its peak, the community had upwards of 300 residents but with declining silver prices, Colonel Conrad filed for bankruptcy and the community was abandoned by 1914.
