History & History Related Items

Orderville was established on 20 March 1874 with a specific purpose by Brigham Young. That purpose was to live the United Order, a divinely inspired program where all things were held in common by the group. Most of the early settlers came from the settlements on the Muddy River in Nevada. Though practiced in a number of settlements, Orderville was the most successful. Out of the program, evolved a self-sufficient and thriving settlement that continued on after the 10 year span of the other areas.
