Discover the history, legend and lore of Carbon County

A major draw to Carbon County is the history, legend, and lore of its western past. When you visit Carbon County, you can step back in time and stay at one of three hotels on the National Register of Historic Places. The oldest hotel in the district is the Hotel Wolf. Passengers in mail coaches used it as a place to rest and eat. The Historic Elk Mountain Hotel offers eclectic style with touches of Victorian elegance and country charm, and no two rooms are alike. The food there is pretty amazing too! In 1911, the Historic Virginia Hotel was the largest hotel between Denver and Salt Lake City. It was the place for cowboys and railroad workers to rest and refuel, and also served as a central location for meetings and gatherings. Today, you can step back in time in antique dormitories or the Shiloh Saloon, riddled with bullet holes to remind you of bygone gunfights!
