Fort Utah

The original settlement at Provo (Fort Utah) was established March 12, 1849 by President John S. Higbee, with Isaac Higbee and Dimick B. Huntington, counselors, and about 30 families or 150 persons sent from Salt Lake City by President Brigham Young. Several log houses were erected, surrounded by a 14 foot palisade 20 by 40 rods in size, with gates in the east and west ends, and a middle deck for a cannon. The fort was first located west of town, but was moved to Sowiette Park in April, 1850.
