History & History Related Items

Once part of the shoreline of ancient Lake Bonneville, Cedar Hills sits on a bench or alluvial fan created by the changing and receding lake. It was called such because of the many cedar trees which grew there. Because of its location high on the hillside, the view of the surrounding area, including Utah Lake, is commanding. Cedar Hills is one of the new communities in Utah County, being established as a community in 1977. It is near Pleasant Grove and Alpine. The area was not used extensively by the local Indian Tribes because of the dryness of the bench, but some artifacts have been found in recent years. In the mid-1800's, the early settlers of the area used the bench mostly for the grazing of livestock. A few tried unsuccessfully to farm there.

Though incorporated in 1977 as a town, Cedar Hills became a city of the third class in 1999. A history page for Cedar Hills
