Lehi has a deep and interesting history. Considered by locals to be the ?Pioneer City,? Lehi went through several names before its incorporation. At one time called Evansville for pioneer David Evans, the area has also gone by the names Dry Creek and Sulpher Springs, for the hot springs that inspired today?s Saratoga Hot Springs resort. When the town was incorporated in the February of 1852, settlers changed the name for the final time to Lehi, which was chosen from a story in the Book of Mormon about a group who moved frequently, just like Lehi?s settlers. Agriculture, a business that still plays a large part in sustaining Lehi?s economy today, was the founding source of financial support at the time of the town?s corporation as well. Crops such as barley, wheat, oats and alfalfa, as well as cattle ranching, poultry, fish farms, sheep and mink ranching gave the town its economic start, followed by the establishment of a sugar plant in 1890, causing the town?s sugar beet crops to become their most lucrative produce until well into the 1900s. Today the area?s fertile soil and deep-rooted agricultural industry remains steadfast in support of the local financial system and the pride taken in its early incorporation by settlers who considered it the ?promised land? is still apparent in the town?s homage to its history via area museums and preserved buildings and other historical sites.
