Historic Helper, Utah
Gateway to Utah's Castle Country
Helper, Utah has a rich history as a railroad and railyard town, and later as a coal mining town. Many immigrants from Italy, Greece, Yugoslavia, Japan, Slovenia, and China settled in the area to mine coal and search for the American Dream. Today the historic main street and The Western Mining and Railroad Museum provides a trip back in time to the beginnings of Helper and the hard-working people who formed its character.
