History & History Related Items

Heber history:

This area was named for Heber C. Kimball. He was a counselor in the Mormon Church presidency to Brigham Young. The majority of people who lived in the valley were from England. Heber C. Kimball was a missionary in that same part of England. Out of respect for him, they used his name, Heber, for their new community. Before the naming, the area was just called Upper Provo Valley. Heber City is a beautiful, picturesque area known for its recreational value and panoramic vistas

In 1858, three men, William M. Wall, George W. Bean and Aaron Daniels built up ranches in the Heber Valley. At the same time, J.W. Snow, from Provo, surveyed the land and set up 20 acre farmsteads. Again, in 1858, a road between Heber Valley and Utah Valley was built. Within two years, the Heber area had grown with other 200 people living and working there. Heber was designated the county seat for Wasatch County in 1862. William M. Wall was made the leader in the area. The city was incorporated in 1889
