activity slowed greatly because of various depressions. By the 1950s
Park City was almost dead; but due to the increase in winter recreational
activity (especially skiing), the town experienced a rebirth in the
1960s and thrives as a key resort town in northern Utah and the West.
The Deer Valley area was added to Park City's development in the 1980s,
and has added to its reputation as an excellent winter skiing area,
as has also Park West resort. In 1976 Park City's local government passed
a Land Management Code, delineating historic districts and instituting
preservation ordinances. In 1978 the Park City Main Street Historic
District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Other
listings followed as the historic character of Park City was viewed
as a key element in the town's colorful past and part of its attraction
for the future.
