HELPER & PRICE REGION OF UTAH

Helper and Price Utah were the primary sources of Coal until Natural Gas became the  energy source of choice.  Helper derived its name  because a "helper" locomotive engine was added to help push the heavy loads of coal over Soldier Summit which has a peak elevation of over 7,000 feet.  Presently, Helper is beginning to become an artist community and my hopes are that it succeeds.  Helper has so much going on: Some historic and cool. Some revived and some new.

STAY TUNED.  MORE TO COME.........
PRICE, UT.  
Price, Utah was home to the Nation's first J.C. Penney Co. store.  A direct competitor to Sears & Roebuck stores.  At one point, Price was the Western State's Coal Mining capital.  Today it is slowly fading away with time as the coal industry is disappearing.  It's a pleasant little town that still services exceptionally good coffee.
