PARK CITY resources

Park City History

Long before Park City became a world class mountain resort and venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, it was famous as a silver mining town and boasts a lively and colorful past.  Park City was discovered in 1868 when soldiers stationed in Salt Lake City traversed the mountain from Big Cottonwood Canyon to find silver. The completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1870 brought hopeful miners by the droves to Utah with their eyes set on becoming rich overnight. The discovery of exceedingly rich silver ore brought George Hearst, the father of William Randolph Hearst, to Park City. His Ontario Mine, purchased for $30,000, produced over $50 million in its lifetime. [Historic Park City]

 

Though the official city limits encompass just 17.6 square miles, the extended community includes areas on the west side of Summit County - from Promontory and Highway 40 to the east, to neighborhoods north of I-80, to Summit Park to the west, and Deer Valley to the south - Park City is a geographic area AND a recreations lifestyle that residents love.

 

Local Community

Park City is one of the most diverse communities in the state. With a wide range of housing options, this allows residents to work and live in the same area – an anomaly among many other resort towns of the same caliber. Workforce housing is a priority for the city and county planners and many subdivisions offer moderately priced choices to protect the opportunity for just about anyone to purchase a piece of this Wasatch Mountain paradise.

The town itself is home to a variety of international companies including Rossignol, Backcountry.com, SkullCandy, and Kodiak Cakes.

Park City also offers easy access to Salt Lake City via I-80, the commute is less than a half hour. Salt Lake City is frequently lauded for job growth, especially in the tech industry and its International Airport Hub.

 

Surrounding Region

Eastern Summit County – includes the communities of Oakley, Henefer, Coalville (the county seat), Kamas and Francis – is primarily agrarian with classic wide-open spaces and abundant ranch land. If you’re looking for a simpler way of life, you’ll enjoy the abundance of small town charm and sense of community, from fairs and rodeos and access to the serene Wasatch-Cache and Uintah National Forests.
