Park Valley Utah
Park Valley Utah is the name of a small community in south of the Raft River Mountains North west of the very top of the Great Salt Lake.
According to Online Utah, Park Valley, Utah was first settled by William Cotton Thomas who immigrated from Brigham City in 1869. He found the heavy growth of trees along the creek and the view inspiring.
In 1890 the population boomed to 500 people when gold was discovered. The boom didn’t last long and the town started declining. It held on for a while as good stop for automobile traffic but now it’s little more then a small quick stop grocery store, a few farms, home to the Volunteer Fire Department, and a few abandoned buildings.
