Thousands of visitors annually come to Price to look at Utah's prehistoric past in the Prehistoric Museum, USU Eastern. Like many Utah towns, Price began as a Mormon farming settlement in the late 1800s. In 1883 the railroad arrived, bringing immigrants from around the world to mine coal reserves. Mining became the town's primary industry, which it remains to this day.
