Park City Museum and Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History will host a lecture called Ephraim Hanks, Early Park City Pioneer Part 2 presented by Margaret Olson and Sally Elliott on February 1st from 5-6 p.m. The lecture will be held at the Park City Museum Education and Collections Center located at 2079 Sidewinder Drive. More information can be found at www.parkcityhistory.org.
Ephraim Hanks, an early Park City Pioneer, and the very brave and prolific Mormon polygamist who likely is the discoverer of silver ore in Park City, will be discussed in this lecture. County Attorney Margaret Olson and City Council Member Tana Toly are both descended from him. Margaret Olson will tell us a few of the many stories about her great-great grandfather. Hanks operated the stagecoach station at Mountain Dell and is pictured here at his log home on what is now 224 in Snyderville.
Margaret Olson, Summit County Attorney and Sally Elliott, Founder and Co-Chair of Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History will be the presenters.
