History of National, Utah
-

National (Carbon) was a 1920s coal mining town 12.7 miles west northwest of Spring Glen. The town was created by Fred Sweet of the National Coal Company. Located along the North Fork of Gordon Creek, National took the name of the mine near the end of Consumers Road (U-139). By the 1950s, National and other mines in the area had been abandoned. Other local coal mining towns were Coal City, 2.8 miles southeast; Consumers, one mile northwest; and Sweets. The Wildcat mine, 8.8 miles southeast, is still active.
