Local News

FARMINGTON (ABC4 News) – ABC4 News popped into Farmington City’s Station Park for a visit Monday for the first stop on our Pop Up Studio Tour.

FARMINGTON HISTORY

Farmington’s earliest inhabitants were Native Americans who stayed until 1860s. Fur trappers came through the Farmington area as early as 1825 and were followed by explorers and immigrants in the 1840s.

Soon after arriving in the Salt Lake Valley with the Mormon Pioneers in 1847, Hector C. Haight traveled north to graze cattle, eventually building a log cabin and settling his family in the area. Other settlers followed over the ensuing years, first naming the town North Cottonwood.
