This page was initially constructed back in 2008 when I wanted to organize all the things to see when my father came for a visit.  This site is the third iteration and hopefully the permanent one.

Progress Report

03/29/2020 Worked on the Museums & Parks section. I came up with some ideas to keep everything on this one free page until I can get some income to cover the expense of a multi-page plan. Need to work on a donation button. Replaced a few of the stock photos with relevant photos.

03/28/2020 Added some content and categories. Added "advertise here" in three places - offering free advertising for the first year.

03/27/2020 Published site with a basic outline of what is to come. I need to find photos for site content.

" Located in a historical train depot complex, our collection tells the history of industry and military in vast Tooele County.  Learn about mining in the Oquirrh mountains, salt and magnesium processing at the Great Salt Lake, Tooele Army Depot, and 20th-century military history.  In addition to the steam engine, railroad cars, and exhibits, we are located in a beautiful, serene park. "


The above photo is of a steam engine that was part of the Tooele Valley Railway. There are also World War II-era Air Force rail cars which were donated by the Tooele Army Depot in the early 1980s.
