Kato Bicycle Tour in Delta, Utah

After Topaz closed in 1945, the government sold the land, water rights, utility poles, water pipes, and the buildings on the site. Half of a barrack sold for $250. Half of a hospital wing sold for $500. The buildings were purchased and moved to locations all over the state of Utah. These are photos of barracks and hospital wings that were moved from Topaz to Delta.
