Park City History

Park City was settled in 1870 as a mining community. It nearly became a ghost town when the mines of the area penetrated the water table and were flooded. Skiing became largely popular in Park City in the 1950s. It was virtually destroyed in 1898 by fire. The town also experienced an explosion in 1902 in the Day West Mine, which killed 34 miners. It was partly located in Summit County, which was founded in 1854; and partly in Wasatch County, which was organized in 1862.
