The first settler was David Cook in 1876. Another early settler was Joseph Bodily in 1877. How was Syracuse named? This excerpt from the above history page tells the story. "Wiliam Galbraith, a salt maker on the lake, printed the name Syracuse on his salt bags, the name came from a salt company he knew in Syracuse, New York. The name was later used by the Syracuse Bathing Resort, built in 1887 by Daniel C. Adams. He was determined to have the finest resort on the lake, and was the only spot along the shore of the Great Salt Lake with a natural grove of trees. The Union Pacific Railroad, constructed the Ogden and Syracuse Railway in 1887. The railway linked the Syracuse Resort to the main line between Ogden and Salt Lake City. The name "Syracuse" was subsequently adopted as the name of our city." Much more historical information is available on the webpage.
