History & History Related Items

Orem history:

Until 1914, Orem was known as Provo Bench. At this time, it was renamed after Walter Orem, the president of the railroad that passed through town. Initially growth was slow due to a less than desirable water supply. In 1935, however, the Deer Creek Dam and Reservoir were built improving the water for Orem. Since that time until the present, Orem has grown tremendously. It is a retail and industrial center and it well-known for its fruit orchards. Orem was once known as Sharon.
