Park City Utah; Long before Park City became a world-class ski destination and a venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, Park City had a colorful past as a silver mining town.  The area was discovered in 1868 when soldiers stationed at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City were sent over the mountain from Big Cottonwood Canyon to look for silver and the discovery of several large veins of silver ore soon brought hopeful miners by the droves to Park City with the hope of becoming rich overnight.  The prospectors set up camps along the hillsides near the mines in what is now known as the Old Town section of Park City.
 
In 1884, Park City was incorporated and by 1889 the town’s population was over 5,000. Originally the town consisted of boarding houses, saloons, stores, theaters, and mine buildings where miners, gamblers, merchants, saloon keepers and ladies of the night from almost every country in the world first put Park City on the map. Modern conveniences like electricity and water and the abundance of silver mine opportunity made Park City a mecca for fortune seekers and the population reached almost 7,500 by 1898, about the same number as today’s full time residency. Park City was plagued by fires in 1882 and gain in 1885. However the worst was in 1898 when most of the town’s structures were destroyed by a tragic fire. Main Street was destroyed and losses were estimated at over one million dollars.  Approximately 200 businesses and houses were also burned and the city was left in ruins. It was the greatest fire in the history of Utah.
After the fire of 1898 the people of Park City worked together to rebuild their town and within a year Park City had a new City Hall. By the 1920’s Park City was completely rebuilt and many of the buildings were a vast improvement over the wooden structures of the past. Brick and stone buildings replaced the fire gutted structures along Main Street and other sections of town and many of those buildings are still intact today, with over sixty-four buildings included in the National Register of Historic Places.
By the 1930’s, the silver boom that had made Park City such a wealthy community was coming to a close, partly because of the Great Depression.  By the 1950’s, fewer than 200 men worked in the mines and Park City almost became a ghost town, although silver continued to be mined until the 1970’s.
In 1963, Park City experienced a rebirth as the people of Park City began to capitalize on the other treasure in their mountains… snow.  There was another fortune to be made in the recreational activities available around Park City.  The first ski area built was called Treasure Mountain Resort and it is the site of today’s Park City Mountain Resort.  Over the years, two more resorts were added, with Deer Valley and Canyons making Park City one of the few resorts around the country with three world-class ski and snowboarding areas within five-miles of each other.  The area has also become a year-round destination with miles of hiking and biking trails, golf courses, fly fishing, music and art festivals, and is home to the Sundance Film Festival.
The 2002 Olympic Winter Games brought Park City to the attention of the world again and visitors world-wide have come to enjoy the skiing, snowboarding, fine dining, shopping and beauty of this historic and picturesque town.  The old mining town structures have been given new life as studios, shops, museums, restaurants, nightclubs and vacation homes.  Through careful planning and historic preservation, Park City has been able to maintain its small, mining town feel while evolving into a vibrant resort town.
