History

West Valley City only came to exist as a single entity in 1980, when four unincorporated bedroom communities southwest of Salt Lake City decided to combine, forming what is now the state’s second largest city. Long before it was settled by people of European descent, the area was the territory of the Shoshone and Ute peoples. The Salt Lake Valley was settled by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (“the Mormons”) in 1847. The region that would become West Valley City was first called “Over Jordan” referring to what they renamed the Jordan River at the center of the valley. Next, the Granger area was settled mainly by Welsh immigrants in 1849. Hunter was settled in 1876. The area would remain agricultural until the 1970s, when the unincorporated communities of Redwood, Granger, Chesterfield and Hunter began to fill up as suburbs to Salt Lake City. They incorporated in 1980. In 2011, they began a 10-year project to build a unified downtown business and commercial district for the city to be known as Fairbourne Station, costing around half a billion (2011) dollars. This new downtown has made the area much more attractive for people looking for mobile homes in West Valley City, UT.
