History

The Salt Lake Valley settlement began when wagon trains of LDS Church members began arriving in 1847. By 1858, farmers from the then-settled towns of Lehi and Kay's Creek, looking for a new place to homestead, began considering the area now known as Plain City. On 17 March 1859, led by Lorin Farr, a group arrived to begin homesteading. Soon after arriving, the group surveyed a townsite and assigned building lots. The town layout used an organized grid system of blocks and streets, originally six blocks north-to-south and three blocks east-to-west. Each block was 5 acres (20,000 m2) in area, divided into 4 lots. The first settlers were allowed their choice in selection of a lot
