Centerville, Utah


Located several 12 miles north of the Great Salt Lake City, Centerville, Utah covers the area starting from Lund Lane in the north down to Pages Lane in the south, a length of 3.3 miles, and ranges, with some minor deviances, from the mountains in the east to the shores of the lake.

Thomas Grover as well as the Deuel brothers, William and Osmyn, were the first settlers in the city, arriving in 1848. They were later on followed by other families, and a small settlement was created. They dragged logs to create homes down the vertical mountains. They needed nails, many of the homes were held together by rawhide thongs and wooden pegs. Later, some developed their homes of adobe, made of straw and clay dried in the sun. Many substantial homes were made from rocks washed down from the hills or seen in the beds of streams.

In 1853, a fort wall was launched to secure from Indian attack; however, the project was abandoned later on. A new wall was developed in 1854, made of dirt and rocks.  It was 6 feet wide at the base and around 8 feet high. As the anticipated Indian outbreaks never materialized, this second wall was never completed. Centerville was known in the early days as the Deuel Creek Settlement, then known as Cherry Settlement, and lastly as Centerville.
