History & History Related Items

Helper history:

Helper is a town that boomed in the late 1800's. It was a melting pot for 21 different nationalities. They came to Helper to mine coal. Helper got its name from the railroad. It seems the railroad grade is very steep from helper to the top of the mountain, to Soldier Summit. So the normal train with locomotives in the front could not pull the trains up the steep grade. So, in the town of Helper, they would attach a few extra locomotives to the rear of the train to help push the trains to the top, hence the name Helper.
The Western Mining & Railroad Museum listed below has much historical information available.
