Coming Home to Park City's History ♦ Past & Present
In 1893, laborers in Park City formed the Western Federation of Miners Union #144. One of the concerns of the miners was to address the need for healthcare due to the dangers of mining and the town's remote location. The union began to raise funds for a local hospital and In 1904 the Park City Miners Hospital was built for the sum of $5,000. The one-acre real estate parcel was donated by Mrs. Eliza Nelson and located at what was then the north end of town, also known as Nelson Hill. It was deemed suitable because of its distance from fire danger and city noise, and its maximum degree of sunshine and fresh air would be ideal for patients. The site is now the northwest corner of the parking lot at the Park City Resort near Thaynes Canyon. What do we say in real estate; location is everything!
The Miners Hospital served Park City's medical needs for thirty years under the Union. In the 1930s it was sold and run as a private clinic until the 1950s, then vacated. In the 1960s the building was renovated to house a bar, restaurant, and Youth Hostel. In the late 1970s plans were made to demolish the hospital and develop the real estate land into condominium units, a hotel, and conference center. Responding to citizens' concern that the building should be preserved, the structure was moved from its original location in October 1979. It took two days to move the 400-ton building to its present location at City Park on Park Avenue. Renovation began in 1981 and by September of 1982, the project was complete. The building is listed in the state and national registers of historic places. The restoration has received recognition from the Utah Heritage Foundation and the National Trust of Historic Preservation.
