BEST TIME TO VISIT: Anytime.
Originally a railroad town.
REMAINS: I recently (June 2013) visited Wahsatch, and there are actually still some ruins that can be seen. These ruins are just off the highway. Going eastbound toward Evanston, take exit 191 to Wahsatch and take the first right onto a good gravel road. Go down that road a few hundred yards to the top of the hill and there will be old foundations and ruins on the left side of the road. These ruins are not on private property and can be freely explored. Photo was taken in June 2013..
|In 1868 hundreds of Railroad workers lived here as a tunnel was dug thru the mountain for the trains. A boarding house and Roundhouse to turn the Locomotives around in were built here. Nothing is left there now other then the above sign for the Railroad. (These Photos were taken July 14 1996) .Submitted by Bob Bezzant.
