It’s not hard to find clues that Park City was a mining town. Evidence of man’s quest for nature’s buried treasure is scattered around the mountains. One historic mining landmark is the Daly West head frame in Deer Valley.
In the 1880s and 1890s dozens of mines were active, making millions of dollars extracting silver and lead. John Daly completed construction of the Daly West Mine head frame and hoisting works in 1896. Destined to become one of Park City’s three largest and richest silver mines, the company distributed $1 million in dividends over the next four years.
Today this mine structure is surrounded by luxury. Ironically, John Daly and many other mine owners chose not to live in Park City. Instead they used their wealth to build elegant homes in Salt Lake.
