The One Utah Town That’s So Perfectly Western

It might be hard to imagine now, but Utah was once part of the Wild West. Prospectors, trappers and mountain men roamed our mountain ranges and hunted in our valleys. Living was certainly more rustic, without many of the city slicker amenities of the East Coast.

Set against a rugged, mountain wilderness, it has a long history of silver mining and prospecting.

Many of Utah’s small towns still reflect our earliest history. Take a look at these picturesque small towns in Utah.
