Significance: The mine office is associated with events that have made significant contributions to the broad patterns of out history, i.e., early 20th century coal mining in Utah and the western United States. The mine office is an integral part of the overall Liberty Fuel mine operation in Spring Canyon, one of the most successful and prolonged mining ventures in the district. Coal mining was the chief influence in the settlement and development of Carbon County. The building displays the craftsmanship of Italian stone masons, using locally-quarried sandstone, the most important architectural influence of this district. Despite acts of vandalism, the site retains integrity of setting and sufficient physical integrity to convey feeling and association with its period of historical significance.
