DescriptionOriginally a farm settlement, Price prospered with the coming of the railroad in the early 1880s as well as the discovery of coal, but prosperity also brought outlaws like the Brown's Hole Gang and Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch. The Price Mural, painted by native Lynn Fausett, illustrates the history of Carbon County and covers 800 square feet in the Price Municipal Building, 200 E. Main St.
