Uintah County's Historical Sites and Homes Book Two UintahCounty Historic Preservation Commission
Utah became a territory in 1850. Uintah County was then a part of Green River County. When Wasatch County was created in 1862 it included all of the Uinta Basin. It was a hardship with the primitive mode of transportation available in those days to travel the 120 miles to the county seat at Heber City, so the settlers living in this area requested the State Legislature to create a new county. Due to their efforts, Uintah County was established in 1880.
The historical facts presented here were derived from available records---Intensive Level surveys, National Register of Historic Places Nominations, Uintah County title records, obituaries, Regional History Center folders, oral histories--- and are as accurate as possible.
This second book begins with site #49 and goes to #98. There is a map which corresponds with the number of the property. A history of the building in Vernal.
