Fertile farms that kept Utahns fed and lumber mills that kept them sheltered once called this city home. While the end of World War II brought people that brought change. Eventually developing into a community that had an identity all their own. Incorporating in 2016 has allowed this community to take more control of its identity and fearlessly push towards the future.
