The Little Town In Utah That Might Just Be The Most Unique Town In The World
We recently touted the small town of Logan as the perfect town to visit on an autumn afternoon, nominated Kamas as a great destination on a summer day, and told you all about Utah’s oldest town, Ogden. We’ve also featured some of Utah’s southern towns, such as Moab, Kanab and St. George. Today, we’re going to visit a town in the central-eastern portion of the state. The town of Price is one of Utah’s under-appreciated gems, and very unique because of the diversity of its offerings.
Price was settled in 1879. It has a rich history of mining, and with around 8,700 residents, it's the largest city in Carbon County.
Main Street is full of historic buildings, including the Mahleres & Simapenos Building.

Farlaino's Cafe is housed in part of the main level.

Dine for breakfast with the locals. The home-cooked food is plentiful and tasty.


For more of Price's history, check out the murals at City Hall.
Created by Lynn Fausett between 1938 and 1941, they depict the history of Price, including the first settlers, town buildings, mining history and more. Take a look at this video to learn more.

Price is surrounded by a vast, sweeping landscape.
