Spring Town
In 1859, this area was resettled permanently
by families of James Allred, Wm. Black, James
Ellis, a large Danish colony of gifted craftsmen
and stonemasons, and others. They surveyed the
land, raised abundant crops, and became known
as the breadbasket of Utah; built substantial
homes and chapel of oolite stone, quarried
south of town. The fort built west of the
chapel in 1858, was burned by Indians, 1854.
Town was incorporated, named Spring City,
