History

In 1863, cattle and sheep found their way to this area, thanks to the efforts of Mormon settlers expanding their lands. Orderville Canyon was a prime area for grazing. It was named after the Orderville United Order, a Mormon Church cooperative established around 1880. The area has been sold and bought several times since then. At one time the area had a sawmill in operation.
