Park City certainly has the fashion, glamor, and ritzy flair of a ski town, but Coalville is a place to see the other side of Utah, strongly connected to the roots and history of the state.

The Summit County Courthouse Museum is in the basement of the historic 1903-04 courthouse, with displays of sewing machines, baseball equipment, stoves and artifacts from the early days of Summit County.

In addition to the exhibits, there are guided tours offered of the courthouse as well as a walking tour down Main St. See the Thomas Allen House from the 1880's and the John Boyden House, built in the 1860's and later expanded.
