In the mid-1800s, an early settler named Parley P. Pratt explored the area and the location was initially called “Parley’s Park City.” About a decade after Pratt settled in the area, silver, gold, and lead ores were discovered and the area underwent a mining boom. After a number of productive years, the mining industry eventually started to recede. The architecture of the historic Main Street still reflects the city’s mining roots.
