Ajax, Utah, – Once Home to Underground Store

on April 13, 2003

Farmers, ranchers, and miners around the town of Ajax in Tooele County could once shop entirely underground at an 8,000-square-foot store built in 1870 by William Ajax. Known as the “Big Store in the Wilderness,” the underground store closed in 1913, and Ajax itself is now a ghost town.
