History & History Related Items

Draper history:

Draper was first called South Willow Creek. Ebenezer Brown, Phoebe-his wife, and their five children are acknowledged as the first settlers of Draper in 1849. They farmed the land and raised cattle to sell to emigrants going to the gold fields in the far west. The name of their home was Draper Fort. When a post office was established there about 1854, the name was changed to Draperville Post Office, then to just Draperville later. The name was for William Draper, who was the first Presiding Elder of the Mormon Church at that time. The winter of 1855-56 found the settlers in Fort Draper and then in the spring, they left the safety of the Fort to build homes and irrigation systems, and further establish the community. The city was incorporated on 22 February 1978.
The incorporation date of Draper: 22 February 1978
