About three miles Southwest of Eureka is what remains of Tintic Station, a onetime bustling railroad station and shipping center for the district that is seldom shown on maps. It is an outgrowth of an earlier railroad town called Ironton, whose long-forgotten and abandoned site sits about a mile west of the current route of the Union Pacific tracks. Today, Tintic Station has a small section house, water tower and several outlying buildings along the road at what is called Tintic Junction.(*)

This is also the site where Amelia Earhart’s plane went down, see this link.
