Osguthorpe Ranch

This property could have seen the development of 120 homes or a massive hotel, drastically impacting the wildlife and the recreational experience of Round Valley. But that’s not what the Osguthorpe family wanted. Thanks to over 200 individual donors and support from Park City, Summit County, the State of Utah and private foundations, this property and the adjacent acres in Round Valley are protected forever.
