Historic Downtown Beaver
Beaver is the County seat and the largest city in the county. Settled in 1856 by Mormon Pioneers, it is located 212 miles south of Salt Lake City and 235 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada on I15. It is the birthplace of Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of television and Robert Leroy Parker, alias Butch Cassidy. The birth home of Philo T. Farnsworth has been moved to downtown Beaver City, located one block east of Main St on Center St, adjacent to the Territorial Courthouse / Museum. The birth home of Butch Cassidy also still stands. It is a private residence located at 355 S 200 W.
Most of the buildings in the historic downtown area are registered with the State and the National Historical Societies and most are still operating.

Cool temperatures provide a great escape from the summer heat. Minersville Reservoir offers opportunities for boating fishermen. Artificial lures and flies are the only bait allowed in your possession while on the reservoir. Only trout over 20 inches may be kept.
