 Utah Travel Center State InformationPeople

Ancient Pueblo cultures, known as the Anasazi and Fremont Indians, had an agricultural lifestyle in southern Utah from about 1 A.D. to 1300. Utes and Navajos lived across what is now Utah for centuries before the arrival of explorers, mountain men, and pioneers.

While residents of the eastern United States were declaring independence from England, Catholic Spanish Explorers and Mexican traders drew maps and kept journals documenting Utah's terrain, and the native people, as well as plants and animals. In the 1820's mountain men roamed northern Utah, taking advantage of abundant fur trapping opportunities.

During 1847, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) migrated to the Salt Lake Valley seeking religious freedom.

This last century, people of varied ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds have made Utah their home - drawn by the state's beauty, and by economic opportunities. Together, this diverse populace made, and continues to make, great contributions to Utah's quality of life.
