History & History Related Items

Leeds history:

The area was settled in 1867 when people from nearyby Harrisburg moved here. It was first called Bennington, but was changed to Leeds when Benjamin Stringham, a local leader, suggested the name change. The settlers came mostly from the Leeds area of England.

The "country" town of Leeds is well known for its history. Noted in the past for its abundant fruit and sorghum, the town has always been the area having the longest growing season in Utah. Quiet Main Street has numerous buildings dating from the 1800's. Off Main, the "ghosts" of the 1930's remain in four stone buildings, the camp of the men of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The Corps was vital to the development of Southern Utah. At the entrance, a sign provides information about the site that has now been nominated for recognition by the National Register of Historic Places. Leeds Town Hall had been a school in nearby Silver Reef until the turn of the century when it was divided into two parts and moved on logs pulled by teams of horses to its present site. Fifteen houses remain on Main that were built prior to 1900. Now being considered is a guided walking tour of Main and the CCC camp. Friendly people and a long season of pleasant days and nights make this country town an enjoyable place to visit.
The founding of Leeds: 1869
