Juab County, Utah

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Eureka was an important commercial center for the Tintic Mining District, which produced gold and silver.  The town's population peaked in 1930 at about 3900 but is much smaller today. Many siginficant historic buildings remain here. This 1920s post office building is on the National Register of Historic Places and is within the Eureka Historic District.

Remnants of service stations of every era and description can be found across the length of Route 6. A previous era in Eureka is frozen in time with an old Plymouth station wagon in this 1998 photo.
