The Western Federation of Miners Union #144 was organized in 1893 and began raising funds for a local hospital in Park City to take care of the miners with Silicosis "the con" and who had been in accidents and would otherwise have to travel thirty miles to Salt Lake City for emergency care. The hospital was completed in October of 1904.

Eliza Nelson donated a one-acre section of land on Nelson Hill, near the Glenwood Cemetery and current Park City Mountain Resort, where the hospital was originally built. The hospital was later moved to its' current home at City Park.

The Miners Hospital served Park City’s medical needs for thirty years under the Union. In the 1930s it was sold and run as a private clinic. In the late 1960s and 1970s it functioned as a restaurant, bar, skier dorms and a hostel.

It took two days to move the 400-ton building to its present location at City Park on Park Avenue and served for many years as the public library. Currently the building functions as an event space.
