History:

A history page for Sevier County

Mountain man, Jedediah S. Smith, was one of the first to travel this area. It wasn't until the winter of 1849-50 that Mormon Apostle, Parley P. Pratt, and his exploration group and later, George W. Bean in 1863, came into the area to assess it for settlement. In 1864, ten men came to what would be Richfield. A few more towns were established within a year or two. During the Black Hawk War (1865-68), confrontations were intense and the scattered settlers moved out of the Sevier area in April of 1867. The settlers returned after 1870 and by 1874, Richfield had nearly 2,000 residents. The county was influenced by the influx of Scandinavian emigrants who brought their own culture with them.
