The “Way We Were Database” is provided to us by the Park City Museum. The Museum is located right on Main Street Park City and we invite you to stop in, visit and tour the amazing facility. With their help and knowledge we can keep Park City’s history and legends for many generations to come.

All the information provided below is from articles published in the Park Record written by Museum staff, volunteers, and interns. Many of the articles can be dated back as early as the 1980s and the images in the Way We Were articles are copyrighted by the Park City Museum (unless otherwise noted and used by permission).

Park City’s history is very important to the Park City And Beyond Team with Mary herself being a 5th generation Summit County landowner. We look forward to showing you around town and helping you understand why this city not only has an upward-and-onward future, but also has a rich and deeply rooted past.

Below are just a few of our favorite articles in the whole collection. Please click here to view all archives and learn more about the Park City Museum itself! All Photos and Information Courtesy of the Park City Museum.
