Historical NoteReturn to Top

Lark, Utah is a small mining town next to the Oquirrh Mountains, which run along the west side of the Salt Lake Valley. The earlier settlers of Lark chose the area specifically for its timber and constructed a saw mill near the mouth of Bingham Canyon. In December 1977 the residents were notified that Lark had been purchased by the Kennecott Copper Company and they had to vacate because the town would be covered by a tailings pile. Many of the town's residents were Hispanic at the time of the purchase.
