The Price City Cemetery is perhaps one of the most ethnically diverse burial grounds in the state. A walk through the cemetery quickly reveals the wide range of diversity. Greek, Japanese, and even Italian headstones line the cemetery. Thousands of immigrants poured into this valley following the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. Some were killed in war, some from mining disasters and sickness. Infamous outlaw Matt Warner, best known for his friendship with Butch Cassidy, is also buried here, along with other outlaws like Joe Walker. Buried alongside Walker is a young Wyoming cowboy who was once mistaken to be Butch Cassidy. A stone engraving with a historical background now marks the graves.
Price is noted as a mining town, as well as for its history as a religious and ethnically diverse community, very atypical for Utah. Greek, Italian, Eastern European, Mexican, Japanese and many other ethnic groups made up the population of the city and surrounding towns and communities as they came in to work for the railroads and coal mines. Price City truly is a land as diverse as its people!
