Old Town reflects the rich mining history of Park City, which was incorporated as a city in 1884, eighteen years after silver was discovered in its mountains. Many of the original commercial and residential buildings still remain, reflecting the Victorian architecture of that era. Main Street in Old Town is known for its great shops, world class restaurants, art galleries and unique character. The residential section of Old Town is close to skiing at Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort, historic Main Street and the free bus. Lots are small and homes are close together offering a quaint and cozy feel to the town. The newer section of Old Town is located near Park City Mountain Resort, the ski resort connected to Main Street via the Town Lift. Newer condominium developments in this area include the Sky Lodge, Caledonian and Silver Star. The public Park City Municipal Golf Course is adjacent to Old Town. Old Town homes are occupied by both full time and part time residents who enjoy being walking distance from Main Street. Nightly rentals are allowed in most areas.
