Morgan County
Established in 1862, Morgan County was named for Jedediah Morgan Grant, father of Heber J. Grant, who served as president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its county seat and largest city is Morgan

An early route of the Hastings Cutoff ran through the Morgan Valley and down through a narrow gorge in Weber Canyon. The Donner Party avoided going through the Morgan Valley in order to speed up their journey. However, their alternate route proved more time-consuming.

In 1855, Charles Shreeve Peterson and his family became the first white settlers to take up permanent residence in the Morgan Valley after cutting a road through Weber Canyon.

Cities and Towns
Croydon -- Morgan -- Mountain Green -- Petersen
Richville -- Stoddard -- Monte Verde
