Nice view down Historic Main Street in Park City with mountains in the background. Had to max out the lens at 105mm but I really like the composition. Would look great in Summer, too. Most buildings on Main Street date to around 1900 and reflect the mining heritage. Easy to feel how difficult miners lives were, especially with 1-2 feet of snow on the ground. Now it's all trendy bars and restaurants in an Old West setting. Fantastic!

Thanks to "Walking Through Historic Park City" (Ringholtz & Kummer) for the history of these buildings. This was a miners boardinghouse built in 1901. One of the first to allow bachelor miners to live close to the "temptations" of town.

This was a boardinghouse for miners that survived the 1898 fire. Now a very good restaurant called Grappa. Check out the bar and dine on the patio in the summer. This will transport you back in time. I can recommend the book Walking Through Historic Park City (1984)by Raye Ringholtz and Bea Kummer for a more thorough discussion of Park City (check at Dolly's Bookstore). Also go to the Park City Museum on Main St. to get a nice walking tour guide ($2).

Former boardinghouse for miners built in 1904. Became an apartment building in the 80's before being turned into a B&B more recently. Great location, near to the Wasatch Brew Pub if you want to get locally brewed beer {3.2% by law :( } and a great burger! The patio in summer is wonderful! Go to Grappa up the street if you want the wine list!!

This building was Joe Dudler's popular saloon, re-built in 1900. It had a brewery in the basement, the first in Park City. It became a dance hall in 1913 and served as the Elks Club until they built their own hall in 1922.

The beautiful Egyptian Theatre (320 Main) and Red Banjo Pizza (328 Main) are fixtures in Park City. Red Banjo makes some of the best pizza in town (some prefer Davanza's) in what was a former saloon built in 1900. The Egyptian Theatre was built in 1926 to replace the Dewey Theatre that collapsed due to snow. The Egyptian offers local theatre, comedy and more. Check out their website (www.egyptiantheatrecompany.org). Christmas is really special here so plan on it when you come to ski.

The Egyptian Theatre built in 1926. This is a replica of the Egyptian Theatre in Pasadena designed by C.R. Berg. You can almost feel the miners packed in to watch the old serials. They now offer interesting local and national talent so check out their website at "www.egyptiantheatrecompany.org" when you are in town. Very nostalgic and very fun.

In 1900 a saloon and cobbler shop, then the Hurlbut Drug Store, then a restaurant and now Java Cow, one of the best ice cream places in Park City. (Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory at 510 Main is good as well.) Lots of local color here tool. The kids love this place.

These are the coolest buildings on Main St. 430 Main was built in 1898 (after the fire) and was a drug store and a cigar and news stand. For many years it was the Pop Jenks ice cream shop that had penny candy for the kids. Who was it that said "What this country needs is a good 5¢ cigar"? they had it back in 1900! 434 Main was designed by Richard Kletting in 1898 for the Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone Company. He was a well know architect and also designed the Utah State Capital. 438 M

Park City Post Office at 450 Main St

Many Park City residents have a PO Box here since there is limited home delivery. This Post Office was built in 1921on the site of the Park City Bank that burned in 1898. The Silver Queen Hotel at 628 Main is architecturally similar to the old bank and is worth a look.

This colorful building was the Summit County War Veterans Memorial Building that was built in the Depression. It is out of character with the Silver Mining architecture of 1900's Park City but I love the colors and the art deco lines.

Old City Hall at 528 Main St in Park City UT

Each night at 10:00 there is a siren that sounds from this tower. This is a tribute to the mining heritage of Park City. In the past, the bell (now a siren) signaled that all the miners had returned safely from the mines. It was also used to notify of fires. The 2-story brick building was the old city hall, built in 1884, burned in 1898 and rebuilt in 1899. It also contained the fire department and a jail in the basement (which you can still visit today). You should visit the Park City M

The Elks Club (BPOE #734) at 550 Main was built in 1922 and is still active today. The lower level was the only gym in town and the high school held their practices and games there. 540 Main St. is the Masonic Hall built in 1908. "Walking Through Historic Park City" (Ringholtz and Kummer) notes that the unique diamond windows were covered over until the building was restored in 1983.

National Garage at 705 Park Ave in Park City UT

This 1907 building originally housed the Beggs and Buckley Livery and was converted to a garage when automobiles began to appear. The building houses the High West Distillery now. Check out the locally made rye whiskey!! The towers to the right are all that remain of the old Silver King Coalition Aerial Tramway that was built in 1901. The tramway used to cary ore 2.5 miles from the Silver King mine to where the Town Lift is today.

The George Snyder family (with several wives) came to this place around 1872 and "Aunt Rhoda" set up a boarding house for miners. They are credited with the naming of Park City. This site became a livery stable and, with the coming of automobiles, a garage. In 1972, the buildings were converted into the current art center.

1886 Victorian train station was the center of Park City activity where locals would go to send off and receive friends and family. The station masters living area was in the upstairs. It stopped serving as a train station in 1977 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Park City Miners Hospital at 1354 Park Ave in Park City UT

This was the first medical facility in Park City when it was dedicated in 1904. This served the community for 30 years and the building eventually became the public library in 1982. This 400-ton building was actually moved in the late 1970's from it's original site near Park City Mountain Resort. You can still see the original operating table in the building.
