Notable buildings

The Bank of Vernal (or Parcel Post Bank) Building (3 West Main Street) is a registered historical building in the Uintah County Landmark Register due to this strange story: the building was built in 1916 by W.H. Coltharp, who wanted to use textured bricks to give a modern style to the facades. Since those bricks were made in Salt Lake City by Salt Lake Pressed Brick Company the delivery cost was enormous, amounting to four times the cost of the material.

Coltharp managed to send those bricks by USPS, through the standard mail delivery system: the fares were very low at the time, so bricks were packaged in 50 pounds parcels (7 bricks each), and sent by lots of 40 packages per day. The total amount exceeded 80,000 bricks.

The shipments were transported from Salt Lake to Mack, Colorado by Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, then the parcels proceeded to Watson via the narrow gauge Uintah Railway and reached Vernal by wagon freight through steep roads. The full trip was over 420 miles long.

US Postal Regulations were later changed to avoid further exploiting of the service: a limitation of 200 pounds per day per receiver was introduced. The United States Postmaster General Albert Sidney Burleson explicitly stated in a letter that "it is not the intent of the United States Postal Service that buildings be shipped through the mail"

The Bank of Vernal was nicknamed "The Parcel Post Bank". Today the building is used as a branch office of Zion's Bank.
