Lark, Utah Photographs MSS P 780

This collection consists of 151 photographs of building that once made up the city of Lark, Utah and includes every home and building in the town before it was razed by Kennecott Utah Copper in the 1970s. The pictures were taken by Kennecott to aid in appraisals and keep track of the properties. Nothing was left standing, although the newer duplexes were moved to Copperton, refurbished into single dwellings and made available to former Lark residents.  Addresses of the buildings are not known.
