More about the topic: Settled after the Civil War, and incorporated in 1884, Park City grew into one of the world’s most prestigious mining camps. Known primarily for its richness in silver, Park City miners also extracted, lead, zinc, gold, and copper from the surrounding hills. As the mines grew, so too did the town, attracting business people, grocers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, and more to the area, in addition to miners and prospectors seeking to strike it rich. From mines large (like the Silver King and the Ontario) to small (like the Nelson Queen), Park City’s early history is that of the triumphs and tragedies of mining, the ebbs and flows of the community, and the metals that made it all happen. Dalton will give an overview of this history, and his presentation will look briefly at Park City’s mining days and general life.
