Celebrating 100 Years!: Price becomes a city of the third class
In the spring of 1911, after considerable lobbying and work, officials and residents of Price finally got what they had been wanting for some time.
They became an in corporated city.
At the time two newspapers represented the town: the Eastern Utah Advocate and the Carbon County News. While they also represented the county as a whole, their emphasis was on Price and what went on in town.
The two papers had a ferocious competition going between them which would intensify even more a few years after Price incorporated, but at the time of the incorporation they both celebrated the event.
Following are some excerpts from those papers from 1911.
Also scattered throughout this special section are photos of celebrations that have taken place in Price over the years, starting in the very early days and up into the last decade.
We hope you will celebrate with the Sun Advocate, the 100 year celebration of Price and the progress it has made over the past century.
