Moving to Moscow in 1878, McConnell's mercantile business prospered so much so that he acquired the title, "Merchant Prince of Idaho." After the house which we now call the McConnell Mansion was completed in 1886, McConnell's wife and four children joined him in Moscow that Christmas Eve. Although McConnell became the state's leading Republican, serving as state senator and governor, and despite securing the University of Idaho for Moscow, he fell into obscurity after losing his money in the Depression of 1893.
