In 1868, silver was discovered in the area that would become Park City. In addition to silver, the town became known for its gold, lead and zinc mining. Park City became official in 1884.

Twenty-six medal events and more than 78 competitions at Utah Olympic Park, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort made Park City the centerpiece of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
