The result of extensive research by Gary Kimball, Saloons of Old Park City is a comprehensive guide that examines the origin, development, and legacy of saloons that impacted Park City’s people and made the city stand out in America. It looks back at the middle of the 19th century, when saloons first began and gradually developed a name of class and eventually a common term for all public houses. As the decades passed, the book reveals, these saloons catered to residents, miners and visitors, and later transformed Park City into a very lively place. Other than historic events, this release also introduces readers to some notable people who were identified with the saloon culture such as Plumb-Bob, William H. Kimball, and more.
