Coming Home to Park City's Real Estate History ♦ Past & Present
Silver Mining to Ghost Town
Long before Park City, Utah became a world-class mountain resort, host for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, and a great place to buy real estate, it was famous as a silver mining town. In late October 1868, soldiers stationed in Utah to protect the U.S. mail and keep an eye on the Mormons climbed over the mountains from Big Cottonwood Canyon to the Park City area and found silver. They marked the outcropping with a bandanna on a stick and returned in the spring. The Flagstaff Mine was founded and began producing silver, lead, zinc, and gold. In 1870, the records show the population of Parley’s Park was 164 but this soon changes with the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad at Promontory, Utah and many hopeful miners migrate to Utah. In 1872, George and Rhoda Snyder name the area Parley’s Park City, soon shortened to Park City. That same year a rich vein of silver is found, leading to the opening of the Ontario Mine and starts a boomtown atmosphere in Park City. George Hearst and partners purchase the Ontario Mine for $27,000; it produced over $50 million in its lifetime.
In 1875 a free public school is established and the first issue of The Park Record comes to press. It is the oldest continuously published newspaper in Utah. Other discoveries of silver occur and more mines are established such as the Crescent, the Anchor, Silver King Mine, and the Mayflower. During its mining years, the mountains surrounding Park City produced $400 million in silver and created 23 millionaires. Park City population approached 8,000 during the late 1890s and Park City's real estate was in high demand. 1898 also brought tragedy to Park City when 200 of the 350 homes and businesses burn in one of the worst fires of Utah history.
By 1930, the idea of skiing had begun to catch on with the installment of a ski jump built on the Creole mine dump. Downhill skiers were few and skiing was mostly a spectator sport. But winter recreation continued to peak and in 1946 the first lift is installed at Snow Park (now Deer Valley Resort®). At the same time mining prices drop and by 1949 most mines had shut down and the population of Park City was less than 1,200. In 1951 Park City was included in a book called "Ghost Towns of the West" indicating nearly no population. I imagine most of the homes in Park City were for sale or boarded up. The city barely existed until 1963 when Park City qualified for a federal loan from the Federal Area Redevelopment Agency. The new ski resort Treasure Mountain Resort opened with a gondola, a chairlift, 2 J-bars and a ski lift pass was $2.50. In 1966 Sports Illustrated included Treasure Mountain Resort’s Payday run among the finest ski runs in the country.
In 1995 Salt Lake City was awarded the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. More than 40% of the events were held in Park City and Deer Valley and the event brought international attention to Park City. Now we are home to the largest ski resort in North America as well as the top-rated skier-only mountain, Deer Valley Resort®.
