History of the Historical Society & Museum

The Park City Museum is an important part of Park City and the historic landscape of Main Street. The Historical Society was incorporated in 1981 and began with a membership of 15 people. The story of the Museum began with two women: Tina Lewis and Patricia Smith. Tina, a City Council member, persuaded the city to fund a Centennial Exhibit (Park City was incorporated in 1884). Patricia, a local artist, was hired by the city to design and create the exhibit. Many people saw the Centennial Exhibit, which turned out to be a great success.

In 1984, the Historical Society and Museum boards merged to make the Park City Museum a permanent facility on Main Street. In 1988, the Museum offices moved from the gym of the Marsac Building into the upstairs of the historic City Hall building. The 2002 Winter Olympics proved the popularity of heritage tourism and historic destinations, as 25,000 tourists visited the Park City Museum during those 10 days. During strategic planning meetings for the Park City Museum after the Olympics, plans were made for major Museum renovations. A successful fundraising effort raised $8.95 million which led to a two year renovation and expansion.

In October 2009, the Park City Museum opened its doors once again and the Museum continues to receive rave reviews about its first class exhibitions. From its beginnings in 1984 until today, 1.6 million people have visited the Museum. Membership has grown from the original 15 to over 500 active members today. But the work isn’t done at the Park City Museum! We are continually working to create first-class exhibitions, deliver engaging educational programming for diverse audiences, and provide a place the community can call its own.

There are many ways to give to the Museum, large and small, and all make a difference. Perhaps one of the following may be right for you.

Each neighborhood is different and because of the extreme diversity and complexity of these micro-markets along with continued consumer demand, changing inventory, new developments and diverse price points, it is important for buyers and sellers to work with a REALTOR. I look forward to being of service in 2019. This report covers the Number of Sales, Sold Volume, Average Sales Price, Average Sales Price Per Sq.

The Sundance Film Festival commences today and I found this article by Rosie G Serago about Robert Redford to be very insightful into the spark that kindled Sundance Mountain Resort. “Redford saw it as a place to hear and tell stories. Sundance’s own story started with a misrouted road trip. Redford, on his way West, came up Provo Canyon by mistake but was quickly captivated by the presence of Mount Timpanogos. He took a side road for a closer look, which brought him to the area that is now Sundance Mountain Resort.”

Park City landowners could compete for development gold should the International Olympic Committee award a 2030 Winter Olympics to Utah. Two local potential development areas are the PCMR development rights at the Resort Center parking lots and at Deer Valley the rights for development on the lots outside Snow Park Lodge. Development of the parking areas have been under discussion since the 1990s, but due to change in ownership at both Resorts, downturns in the economy throughout the years and the displacement of Resort parking during construction; these projects have not been a priority.

Could the Olympics finally bring these development plans to fruition? Click the link http://ow.ly/vDtH30nbnNa to learn more!
