Salt Lake City History


City of Zion

The land that encompasses the Great Basin desert was occupied for millennia by nomadic tribes including the Navajo, Paiute, Shoshone, and Ute peoples, from which the state of Utah would take its name.

The origins of Salt Lake City can be traced back to the mid-19th century when a group of pioneers, led by Brigham Young, sought refuge from religious persecution. These intrepid souls, driven by their unwavering faith in the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, embarked on a challenging trek across the desolate plains and treacherous mountains in search of a promised land.

Their arduous journey, known as the Mormon Pioneer Trail, spanned over a thousand miles, fraught with challenges and hardships.

After months of traversing rugged terrain, they reached the verdant Salt Lake Valley in July 1847, a place they recognized as a haven where they could freely practice their religious beliefs and build a thriving community.

The pioneers wasted no time in transforming the arid valley into a flourishing city. Guided by a spirit of industry and resilience, they laid out a meticulously planned grid system, now synonymous with Salt Lake City, where wide streets intersected at right angles. This foresighted urban planning not only facilitated ease of navigation but also allowed for the orderly growth and development of the city.
