A Town is Born by E.J. "Gene" Amitrani
The Story of South Park City

This book was written in response to the many requests from those who visited South Park City and wanted to know more about this unique town. The book describes how South Park City was created, where the idea came from, how the buildings were moved and a short background on the ghost towns that are represented by these buildings.

I have tried to be as accurate as I could in separating the facts from the legends in this account of a very small part of the early West; however, new discoveries are continually being made which disprove what was once thought of as fact.

This is the story of Mr. Leon H. Snyders dream. He was a modest man who did not seek the lime-light or want personal recognition for his accomplishments. Through his dynamic personality and leadership, South Park City became a reality.

"A Town Is Born" can become a part of your library to share with your family and friends. They too will want to visit South Park City Museum! It was exciting for me to write this book, for this is an authentic representation of a Colorado mining town of the 1800s, born in the 20th century in Fairplay, Colorado. I know of no other town like it in the United States. I hope you enjoy it. (5.5" x 8.5" 115 pages)
