The Summit County Courthouse in Coalville, Utah, on Main St., was built in 1903. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
Its construction settled a running dispute about where the county seat would be located. The newspaper of Park City, Utah was disappointed but came around to agree that the building would serve the county well.
It was designed by F.C. Woods & Co. of Ogden, Utah, and it was built by contractors E. J. Beggs & J. H. Salmon.

It is Romanesque Revival in style.

  • Not only is there the free museum in the basement of this courthouse to visit should you have the desire but this place is actually fast and efficient which is saying something when it comes to most government run places. If you need to register your vehicle you can be in and out in less than 5 minutes. They care about the community too from helping high school students ask/answer for dances to helping with the parades/fairs every year. Small town means they actually care and are interested in taking great care of you.
  • Staying in Park City, Utah, I took a trip of about 15 miles to Coalville, Utah. In Their county courthouse basement is a wonderful little museum. There are multiple rooms depicting everything from mining to houses in the 1800's. A lot of care obviously went into collecting and placing the items in the displays. There is no charge--only a request for donation. It was certainly worth the drive to this quaint town, and worth a donation.
