Eureka, Utah

View of Church Street looking south from R. R. Bridge. Wide, well-kept streets characterized this early Utah mining town. Second house on right, W. F. Shriver. Sixth buiding on right, St. Joseph’s parochial school. Large building on the hill (on right side) is the Gemini Mine. First home on left, Mrs. Meyers. Structures on the hill on left side are the Eureka Hill Mill and the Company House. Eureka was settled when gold was discovered in 1869. More than six communities were settled to provide housing to miners.
