History

Bountiful has the distinction of being the second oldest settlement in Utah. It is the immediate outgrowth of immigration which followed the original pioneers in July 1847. Perregrine Sessions encamped on a spot of ground later embraced in the town of Bountiful, where he made his permanent home. He was accompanied by Samuel Brown and these two men built a shanty and herded 300 head of cattle on the range. In the spring of 1848 Perregrine Sessions built a cabin for his family and more settlers came and joined him.
In 1849 nearly all the grain and vegetables planted by the pioneers settlers were destroyed by crickets. When despair filled their hearts, the sea gulls, from the Great Salt Lake providentially came to the rescue and enough of their crops were saved to preserve the people from actual starvation.
