Helper, Utah

Helper, Utah is a mining town on the eastern slope of the Wasatch Mountains in Central Utah. Helper is most noted for its Western Mining and Railroad Museum which is a must see stop for anyone interested in the history of the west.

Like many railroad towns, Helper fell into a state of disrepair for several decades. Located in an ideal location at the mouth of the Price River Canyon, the town has been undergoing a renaissance as an arts and crafts center.
