(pages 310 - 321)








This county is the smallest in the Territory, having an area of only about 250 square miles. It is located between Weber and Salt Lake Counties on the north and south; is bounded on the west by the Great Salt Lake and one the east by the Wasatch mountains. It thus consists of a strip of land stretching along the western base of a lofty range of mountains. The afternoon sun sheds its genial ray over the broad acres of rich soil that lie near the everlasting hills, maturing grain, fruit and vegetables before their natural time. In the deep canyons and ravines is found a supply of irrigating water that is usually all-sufficient, and also timber for fuel and building purposes. The Utah Central passes along the entire county, through well tilled farms and bounteous orchards laden with peaches, plums, apples, pears, etc. Of the arable land contained in Davis county there is but little that is not constantly under cultivation and the product of the farms has made the inhabitants thrifty and prosperous. It is the district through which all tourists pass on their way to Salt Lake City, and the impression that they receive from its aspect does more to frame their opinion of Utah and its thrift than is generally conceded. Agriculture being almost solely the pursuit of the people of Davis county, it supports a number of large flouring mills and supplies much of the gain and flour that is exported from the Territory. There are about 11,000 acres now under cultivation of which 3,500 are wheat and 4,000 hay and lucerne. The property valuation is but little short of a million dollars. The county officers are at present as follows:

Probate Judge. - Wm. R. Smith
Selectmen. - Wm. Brown, Rosel Hyde, Jacob Miller.
County Clerk. - Joseph Barton.
Recorder. - Arthur Stayner.
Treasurer. - Ezra T. Clark.

Is a charming settlement of 2,000. It is widely scattered, - the residents being nearly all farmers - and is from eight to ten miles from Salt Lake City. The town has been variously known under the names of Wood's Cross, Session and Bountiful, but it is now officially known by the latter appellation. The title is appropriate for the surrounding soil is bountiful in its yield of vegetables, fruits and cereals. The settlement is supplied with a number of schools in the different wards and the average attendance among children of school age evinces the degree to which the education of youth is encouraged. The citizens are generally well to-do, quite on a par with the generality of farmers in the territory; and it may be said of Bountiful, as of every part of Utah that has become permanently settled, that cases of absolute want are entirely unknown. The town has one of the finest meeting houses in the country.
