History

Bountiful was settled on September 27, 1847, by Perrigrine Sessions and his family. It was Utah's second settlement after Salt Lake City. It was known as both Sessions Settlement and North Canyon Ward before being named Bountiful in 1855. This name is appropriate, both because of the city's reputation as a garden place and because "Bountiful" is the name of a city in the Book of Mormon. (Most of the settlers, and also most of the present inhabitants, are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.)

The city was incorporated in 1892 with Joseph L Holbrook as mayor.
