In the mid-1800s, the Eden Valley served as a gateway to the West, welcoming travelers across the Mormon and Oregon Trails. Today, it serves as a gateway to imagination as you discover the historic roots of settlement in the West.
Starting with Native Americans, then followed by fur traders, mountain men and western pioneers, the Eden Valley served as a thoroughfare for settlers and passers-through long before the area was settled. In fact, the year 1824 marked the first east-west crossing of South Pass.
But it was in 1907, when John M. Farson’s large-scale irrigation developments were complete, that the settlement of the town was formally established. Long-term settlers were attracted to the area by pamphlets that promised, “fruit orchards that grow higher than a man’s head.” This was the beginning of the farming and ranching community that still thrives here today.
