More Information[edit | edit source]

Carbon County was established in 1880 from part of Emery County. With the completion of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad in 1883 and the development of coal mines, primarily in upper Emery, to fuel the railroad, the demographics along the Price River altered. The Utah Territory Legislature was petitioned to separate off the north section, and thus Carbon County was founded on March 8, 1894. It was called after the element carbon to reflect the area's industrial nature.

Carbon County is Utah's second-largest natural gas producer (behind Uintah County), producing 94 billion cubic feet in 2008.
