History & History Related Items

Beaver history:

Beaver was settled under the direction of the Mormon church in the mid-1800's. It was named Beaver because the nearby river had many beavers and beaver dams. The new settlers were mainly from the town of Parowan to the south. Many of today's residents are descendents of those orginal pioneers. Fort Cameron was established in 1873 as a protection from the Indian uprisings of the time. After the need has passed, the fort was made into the Murdock Academy. The mining boom brought the opportunity of the railroad and other aids to development. Beaver was the first town in the state to get electricity. The hydroelectric generation plant that was built in the early 1900's is still in use today.

One of Beaver's claims to fame is that it is the birthplace of Butch Cassidy (Robert Leroy Parker - 1856) In the town's early days, there was a mining boom which brought in many "outsiders" to the predominant Mormon town. The two lifestyles did not mix well and there was much unrest in Beaver until the mining was mostly over. The area is known for its hunting and fishing and other recreational activities
