Price Photographs

    Price is the county seat of Carbon County and the home of the College of Eastern Utah. It is also the convention center of the area with many restaurants and hotels. It was originally settled by the Mormon pioneers and later immigrants from France, Greece, Italy and other European countries arrived and began raising sheep, farming and establishing businesses. To accommodate the ethnic diversity many churches of different religions were built. Price was also the headquaraters for the wagon freight to Fort Duchesne in the Uintah Basin.
